"Duncan is the thinking person’s exploratory investigator."

"Urban explorer Duncan JD Smith has a real knack for
mapping the lesser-known parts of cities, discovering
aspects of urban history which most visitors miss.

"One has the sense of a man who has conducted
impeccable research but still contrives to arrive
with an open mind. That’s a rare touch."
