    Started off early, nice and sunny too with barely anyone around. A couple of days before I scouted around the place to find my best entrance point--I know loads of reports have already been written on this place but I still couldn't believe how easy entry was ! Didn't bump into any secca thankfully, although at one point in the main hospital I heard voices coming from the restaurant which promptly lost my nerve and saw me fleeing up the stairs lol! The place is awesome and I intend to go back and see if I can find anymore amazing areas; hope these shots show some things that haven't been covered yet.

    History:
    The Derbyshire Royal Infirmary was built in 1810 and then demolished after the typhoid breakout in 1890. Queen Victoria then laid the foundation stone a year later and in 1894 the hospital had been completely rebuilt. During the 20th century several expansions took place which explains the current mismatch of architectural design. In the late 90's the premises began the move over to the new 'super' hospital on Uttoxeter New Road and now only a small part of the 1987 built area remains active providing medical services.

    Not bad mate, but I would loose the flash and set your iso a bit lower for less grain.

    As Els has suggested, you may like to lower your Iso a bit - even your externals have got quite a bit of noise.
    Good effort though mate :thumb
    Its a good explore

    Yuck, ye the place certainly looks like it's been hit with a dirty protest in parts. Bit off putting, at least you saw the douche bag (literally!) before you ran into it ;)

    Thanks guys for the comments; not sure how to edit the double-script atm but i'll look into AuntieKnickers, I don't know how that happened without me noticing lol ! My Camera is a Panasoinc Lumix TZ35, only had it a few months so still getting used to it, will heed the advice and see if I can sort out its graininess :)

    It might have been me and my friends you heard, we knew we weren't the only ones in there. We were there for 6 hours and still haven't seen even half of it! Well done by the way:thumb
