    My first proper explore and post so any feedback is welcome. Advice on pictures welcomed too, as I am new to my DLSR as well.

    I appreciate Barrow has been done a few times on here, however its just up the road for me and I had a spare morning so I took the missus and the boy with me.

    Have to say I didnt realise the size of the site, and I didnt manage to see all of it, so will be popping back sometime soon.

    Anyway, quick copy and paste of some history and then my attempts at some pics.

    "Barrow hospital was Bristol's second purpose built hospital for the treatment of the mentally ill. The earlier Bristol Mental Hospital at fishponds, built in the 1850's was very much a typical victorian style asylum, where as Barrow was conceived from its very beginning to be a modern progressive hospital. By the 1930's Bristol Mental Hospital was becoming very overcrowded and the need for additional facilities was widely acknowledged, so Bristol corporation purchased 260 acres of land near Barrow Gurney at the market value on £20,000 as the site of the new purpose built Hospital"
