    After two failed attempts at the Rochester Police Station, first we heard an almighty bellow from some guy telling us to keep away from the cars!! And the other we had a yocal decide he was going to go and get his crow bar to help us get in! He really thought we wanted to nick stuff, and left mother and baby to go help us! HMMMMM!!

    We decided to head onto the last place of the day, Bennenden Hospital, we had no idea of access and awaited eagerly to arrive. With 3 cars in tandem we had a lot of randomness from Urbex over the radio waves, we arrived.

    The place looks amazing, not huge, but MINT! So after a bit of mooching around, Someone07 found a way in and after a bit of fun even I was in lol.

    This was very cool and nerve wracking at the same time. We had no idea of PIRS or anything, so we were treading on (Easter) egg shells the whole visit. Looking at Snappels report I think we did the other half to him as we did not see the plaque, and access was too tricky into the other half of the building! I shall let the pics do the talking, but I just wanted to say….

    Thanks ever so much to Moddy for all his help organising the trip, your local knowledge was just the best! And to everyone for coming and making it a laugh – I really had a great time and you were all fab LOL.

    Pics……..

    After the disappointment of Rochester Police Station it was looking as if we had struck another disappointment. Until someone07 [I think - I am just about managing to remember whos-who :p] found a way in.

    Fast forward a few minutes and we were all cautiously navigating the corridors! I spent alot of this exploration just waiting for security to come! It was quite a tricky one due to CCTV and the live site opposite. Then there was the incident with the door as we left...

    The actual interior was rather dull in my opinion - the insides seemed bare. Although the items that were in storage there did offer some interesting insights. [Saying that - Medical equipment freaks me out a little bit!]

    Here's some of my quick photos [Rather poor as I was waiting to have to get out a bit quick!];

    One of the many items just left here, in storage

    Beds, Beds and more beds. The mattresses were stored in the side rooms.

    Some weird "box set" - 2 inhalers, little containers of tablets (or it looked like it) and some other contraption.

    Thanks again all who went, (Especially Tam for the organising!) it was a great day - I really enjoyed it. We'll have to do similar again!

    And some of mine from the visit. Felt really chuffed to have got in this place, even if it is not my preferred kind of place!

    I think everyone is right that while it was interesting, and a less in never giving up, the inside was a bit bare. I only have two pictures to add...

    One of the outside which is probably similar to another

    and one with some strange reflections from the glass on the upper balcony

    P.S. Its Benenden not Bennenden
