    Today didn't get off to the best of starts - the cash machine in Guildford Railway station ate my card and my exploring buddy for the day Flubbera87 was seriously delayed by traffic, but we eventually made our way over to Hellingly for one last trip round the place as I really wanted to see the stuff I didn't have a chance to see earlier this year.

    The way in was, how shall I put it....sharp...me and Flubbera must have got stabbed thousands of times by brambles, and on the way out it was worse as he ended up stuck in a hole whilst I grabbed a branch that then broke plunging my hand into a whole load of brambles and then a tree stump got rather intimate with my ankle, we did have a good laugh about it though as it was rather funny:D

    This trip to Hellingly was one of my favourite explores I've been on so far, everything about it was just spot on, the asylum itself was seemingly alive with the recent rainwater pouring off roofs, the wind literally howling down corridors and through the many broken/missing windows and most exciting of all the sounds of excavators and bulldozers just outside accompanying us for much of the explore which was an extra thrill. The near-miss with security also provided us an extra something.

    Here's a little snippet of history as I'm sure most people know the story by now

    I've tried to avoid the cliched Hellingly shots (apart from the obvious...)in this report and hopefully have brought something new-ish:)

    First port of call was of course the main hall


    The rest of my pics will be on Flickr at some point

    fergodssake stupid photobucket.

    *edit* here are the pics for those who haven't seen them, I don't know if a mod could edit my original post to get rid of the dead photobucket links and put the ones off Flickr there instead?

    Then it was time for a leisurely tromp through the rest of the asylum
