    Had a good day in Hellingly today first time i've ever been there and was great to tick another Asylum off the list. It was very busy like walking around a shopping centre there was 9 of us, Loads of chavs, Pikeys stripping things and 6 or 7 other explorers and the friendliest security we've ever met.

    Hellingly Hospital was an enormous mental hospital in the village of Hellingly, east of Hailsham, in East Sussex. The hospital, also known as East Sussex County Asylum or just Hellingly, was opened in 1903. Its architect was GT Hine, one of the great asylum architects of the era.

    The hospital boasted its own railway line, the Hellingly Hospital Railway, used principally for transport of coal. This branch line led from the main line to the boilerhouse. The hospital also had a vast laundry, ball room, patients' shop, sewing rooms, nurses home, extensive grounds, and an advanced utilities network for its time, including a large boilerhouse and a water tower. It followed the compact arrow plan for the main hospital, with separate villas surrounding this.

    The majority of the hospital closed throughout 1994, however, and to this day much of the 25.4 hectare site stands derelict and extremely run down, after suffering repeated vandalism and multiple arson attacks. The hospital is popular with Urban Explorers, not because it has many hospital items remaining but because of its size, severe dereliction and its dilapidation. The main hall/ballroom is a fine example, and is one of the hospital's most recognisable features.
