    Had a bit of spare time on my hand and I needed to take a photo for my UNI work so thought we would head up here as I had not been before.. We knew it was a bit trashed to say the least.. The top floor is soaking from leaking sky lights, so be careful as it is only a matte of time I guess till that comes down :(
    We just stomped about checking out the few decent(ish) bits and pieces then bid the place farewell.
    The location is a bit strange as it is placed right in the middle of a little village, and now just sits there.

    HISTORYNICKED FROM theoccipital who nicked it from the BEEB
    This is taken from the BBC News website from around the date of its closure 2002:

    The only residential clinic for alcoholics in Lincolnshire is to close but a senior specialist has warned the move is a dangerous one. The Ferdowse Clinic at Heckington near Sleaford has treated up to 2,000 people since it was set up 15 years ago. But the focus for funding residential care nationally has shifted to illegal drugs and the Ferdowse is no longer regarded as a priority. But the clinic's medical director has warned alcohol is a bigger problem than headline-catching drugs. Dr Mostafa Morsy said: "It is dangerous that alcoholics are being denied the chance to receive residential treatment. "It is dangerous that the government is giving priority to drugs because alcohol is far more dangerous than illegal drugs." Tom Edwards had a drinking problem for 30 years before coming to the clinic. It cost him his career in the televison industry and many of his friends. He said: "I was going round in a kind of vicious circle. When I crossed the threshold of the Heckington clinic my battle with the bottle was done - and the bottle had won - I had given in." Since his treatment he has been alcohol-free for three years.

    Always love seeing that stained glass window on the staircase. Surprised it hasn't been put through by now so glad it's still there. Lovely shot.

    Great shots, beautiful old staircase! You've really nicely captured the atmosphere of this place. Is it a decent sized place for an explore?
