    So on our little break in Lancashire and after exploring Moorcock Inn we decided to have a little drive to Blackburn and have a mooch around the old infirmary.




    History of the place:

    The Blackburn Royal Infirmary (BRI), was decommissioned in the summer of 2006, after a new hospital building was built at the existing Queens Park Hospital (QPH) site in the town, so to merge the two sites into a single hospital for Blackburn. Blackburn Royal Infirmary was first opened in 1865 but there have been extensions built in 1965 and 1980 to increase the number of beds & improve services. The War Memorial Wing of the infirmary, built soon after the First World War, is the only part of the hospital left standing when the rest of the building was razed to the ground to make way for housing. Leeds-based Ideal Care Homes wants to demolish the building and replace it with a three-storey, 64-bed care home with car parking and landscaping (subject to planning)


    All I can say about this place is that it is totally trashed, never seen anything like it. Glad I got to visit the place before it gets demolished or whatever happens to the place, just a shame it wasn't sooner before it got destroyed inside.

    Anyways, on with the pics.....

    Nice report there fella, good shots of a pretty fucked up building!
    When you said you explored the Moorcock Inn, are you talking about the pub sitting on the top of Caldervale?
