    Coldeast Hospital is an explore that's eluded me for a long time. However with recent news of investors pulling out, happening to be in the area, and almost exactly 2 years since my last attempt, I thought it would be worth a look.
    Two years ago I made several attempts at entering the beautiful manor house that became the main hospital building. Fences were scaled, security were begged, all attempts resulted in a long walk home. This time, however, a lovely stroll through some fields provided what is probably around the easiest access to a building I've ever known.

    The history:

    The internet seems to struggle with a date of when the hospital closed its doors, but it seems to have sat empty since the late 90s. Since then numerous planning applications have been approved to provide housing on and around the site, with the main building being approved to become a large hotel. The building has undergone some preservation and light redevelopment toward this over the last few years, however it has been left empty again after the previous investors pulled out.
    Further information on the building and its many failed plans is of course available from google.

    On with the pictures:
    This report is going to be pic heavy due to the incredible beauty of the building, coupled with it's astonishing lack of destruction providing some beautiful features. Sadly I only had my phone with me, so the pictures aren't as good as I would have liked. There are also pictures included from a non-member, with his permission.
    This building is certainly the most beautiful building I've explored, along with being in the best condition I've seen, if entirely empty.
    The main problem I have is choosing few enough photos to make a report of acceptable length!

    Not bad mate. I tried this numerous times in the past but the developers were based there and on at least a couple of occasions there was some heavy in or around the place.

    It's easy enough to get into, but it's been fully converted now, so it's probably not a good idea

    Went to the school just up the road, we used to short cut through the grounds and we convinced ourselves we could hear all sorts of noises. Always wanted to go in that house, never got close enough ever. Nice pics

    Love these photos. I did my nurse training in the mansion and the student accommodation was on the top floor. I later returned to work in the building. The photos brought back a lot of memories. I do admire your bravery as it was a creepy building with lots of ghost stories and weird happenings! I'd love to know if the walled gardens are still there. They were at the back of the building. I did drive round it the other day but its boarded up and it looks as though its being renovated. Id love to go in and have a look.
