    Great day of fun creeping around the corridors avoiding security etc..... won't bore you with all that on with the show



    History

    Goodmayes was largely undeveloped until the end of the 19th century, when large scale suburban development took place as London expanded. However, Goodmayes does appear on maps as early as the 1770s. Barley Lane is believed to be named after Dorothy Barley, last Abbess of nearby Barking Abbey (elected 1527). Most of the area here and in neighbouring Seven Kings was only built up between 1898 and 1910 by the developer A. C. Corbett who used new stations on the Great Eastern Railway to promote the new suburbs.Goodmayes station was built in 1901 Since then, little has changed in the area and the lines of Edwardian terraced housing continue to dominate the area with relatively few more recent additions.

    Former extensive railway sidings near Goodmayes Station were closed in the 1970s and later redeveloped for retail purposes. A large Tesco store and a branch of Wickes now occupy the site.

    Actor Cardew Robinson was born in Goodmayes on 14 August 1917. He is best remembered for character and cameo roles, the best known being the fakir in 'Carry-On Up the Khyber'. He died at Roehampton in 1992.

    Actor Sir Ian Holm was born at Goodmayes Hospital on 12 September 1931, to Scottish parents, Jean Wilson Holm and James Harvey Cuthbert. His mother was a nurse and his father was a psychiatrist and superintendent of the West Ham Corporation Mental Hospital as Goodmayes Hospital was then known. Cuthbert was one of the pioneers of electric shock therapy for treating mental illness. Ian Holm was created a CBE in 1989 and was knighted in 1998.

    shame people aren't getting around more of the place now. This place has so much more to offer although when we went last year it was still pretty active around the corridors. Some of the empty wards are now being used as meeting rooms or counselling rooms as they are equipped with new clocks, desk fans etc.

    We had a wander round here over a couple of nights late last year too and as mentioned alot of it is still very much live with lights and heating on (it was unbelievably hot in there!) and some side offices and wards were clearly in use.

    Sadly all the old derelict wards appeared to be well locked up so we didn't get much opportunity to look at those, they looked in fairly good shape though from the little we could see.

    Well worth a wander as @obscurity mentioned, it has alot to offer. Just need to be on your toes as there are still people wandering round the corridors at all hours.

    It's time will come. The hall is quite probably the best but a bit full of crap atm. Will be better when it's cleared and un-alarmed

    @Speed Is the hall behind these doors?

    We tried for a while to work our way in but it was chained from the other side I think. The doors looked impressive so it was a bit of a tease as to what was behind them.
