    The Location

    This one has been on my list of places to visit for a very long time, and by the looks of it I made it just in time as the builders have begun gutting the place :(. They have also begun building on the the field in front of the main building so it won't be to long until this place has been converted to 'luxury' flats. However it did still present a few interesting and surprising qualities. The top floor has relatively been left untouched since it's days as the science department. But the most exciting part of this is that its a 'Double Whammy' a School and a Hospital in one (even if it is a fake hospital :rolleyes:), One moment you're in a hospital corridor then you are in a chemistry lab. Parts of the main building have already been demolished, there is a large section at the back (that was used in the production of Monroe as the 'Thompson Wing') has now almost disappeared. The school closed back in 2012 ending its 108 year history and was merged into the local boys school. Then in early 2010 ITV expressed an interest in the location and turning it in to what it hoped would successfully replace The Bill. Then in late June that year work began on converting it into a hospital.

    It took about 8 weeks to convert it into what was now called 'St. Matthews Hospital' basically all they did was give areas a fresh coat of paint and add a few walls. Production then began on 26th September 2010. But this was to be short-lived, as this was then canceled in 2012 meaning that producers Mammoth Screen churned out 12 episodes spread across 2 series. The building then sat empty again. Work has now started on converting the school into apartments and several houses are currently being build on the grass land at the front of the school. Most of the boards have been removed from the windows so light in the rooms is fairly good. But the ground floor reception area is still black. Anyway on with the photos.
