    Visited with Kent-Urbex, in January 2011

    History first:

    It's being converted into housing, as is standard. They are at least converting some of it, rather than just demolishing everything.

    This has been on our to-do list for a while, and with the rest of our list being considerably further away from our homes, we decided that the time had come to have a look. The fact that demolition is well under way also helped make our decision.

    Access was pretty tricky, we were starting to get worried when we finally found a way in. Fair play to security, they've certainly done their work with the nail gun. They've also cultivated very small stinging nettles, which meant my hand was incredibly warm throughout the explore, despite the cold weather.

    Once we were inside, aside from a few closed doors which made navigating around a little bit tricky at times, there were no real problems. We saw security once, but we weren't sure if he was looking after the house itself, or just the plant machinery on the site - of which there was a lot.

    The place is very stripped but in surprisingly good condition. There was just enough to see to make it worth-while, and the exterior of the place is absolutely lovely. Workmen have started to get rid of the asbestos in the hall, and there were lots of thick electrical cables run about the hospital.

    All in all, a pretty interesting explore. Photos;
