    Has anyone managed to get round to this place? Knew it shut last year after the bigger hospital in Southmead was built in May but seen no reports on it, rumours were it was being refurbished for residential development, just wanted to see if anyone knew anything on it before i struggled my way down there just to be let down.

    Cheers :thumb

    It's pretty much all still there, but there are a lot more padlocks compared to last summer when we were smashing it. Slightly harder to get in too (as in, not a walk in anymore) but still can be done. Go take a look!

    It's certainly still doable but not really worth it anymore. You're about a year too late.

    My advice would be to go to Selly Oak instead

    Went here in January with wobs92. The whole site seemed padlocked/locked and the road that goes through the site is quite close to security so it's a difficult site to do now. We were lured in by the awesome reports from last summer but the boat has definitely sailed with this one.

    Smashing it = exploring the shit out of it.

    I thought that was the case... We went to see Barrow Hospital the other day and it was gutting to see just rubble. The developers have swarmed in on nearly every site around Bristol in the last year. Whilst at Barrow we came across a group of chavs screaming and smashing (not exploring the shit out of it) which completely ruined our time at what was left of the Last standing dorm. It really angers me when people loot/vandalise these beautiful sites. Although Barrow hardly has anything left to vandalise... there is one other little cluster of very small buildings on site which is hidden and will hopefully stay standing for a few months yet.

    Barrow has been fucked since about mid/late 2008.. thats when they actually began demo'ing it and to be honest after that it really wasn't worth it.. it decayed nicely for a while but nothing to the mint state it was before then.

    Bristol is a city with huge growth (statiscallly it didn't even go into recession during the period most of the rest of the country was in) and therefore sites are developed very quickly. Frenchay was great early doors, very handy if you were local.. we don't get many like that.

    I got a load of relatively cool pictures on my phone which are just about worth posting. I will stick them up when I get a chance to look through them.
