    Frenchay Hospital, Frenchay, Bristol

    Visited over a couple of trips, with the delightful company of WhoDaresWins, END-PROC, tumbles, rasinwing, JasperB, Gabe and Idavoll.

    Some brief and stolen history for you, as this one has only recently appeared on the radar:

    Future:

    We all knew of the imminent closure of Frenchay for quite some time, but didn't realise quite how much it would have to offer, and indeed how easy it would be to see it all.

    Over two very pleasant days of spending quite a lot of hours wandering around the place, we pretty much covered the whole place, with the exception of the maintenance buildings (which are still live) and the water tower, which is currently locked tight. We were free to wander around undisturbed, which made it just that bit more special.


    See, whoever said that Bristol can't do decent things?

    Crikey what a comparison when you compare that to DRI, wonder how long it will take for this to go the same way, which will be a shame!

    Nice photographs and nice report thanks for sharing :)

    Cheers all. Just a heads up, if you want to see this with even remotely decent stuff still left in situ, you need to be quick. It is being cleared fast!

    Sad really for all the Hospital enthusiasts as I guarantee the NHS will be more clued up on future closures, no more wandering around the wards amongst the strip out crews with tea and biscuits :rolleyes:
