    Explored with a non-member​

    So after an initial scouting mission we decided head back for an early morning mission.. except by the time we'd woken up and had a Macdonalds breakfast it was no longer that early. Still this place is a fantastic little location. Sadly there is only the admin block, the main hall and a few other bits that haven't been redeveloped left, most of the rooms are pretty empty. However due to the fact that it's surrounded by a fairly live building site it's managed to avoid it's fair share of vandals and graffiti kids.

    As always I'm going to shamelessly pinch my history from good old Wikipedia!

    Onto the pictures!

    Excellent set of pictures, some of the best actually.

    Just one thing... "11. The slab" is actually 'a slab'. That's not the main mortuary.

    Noted and updated dude :) Just put 'the' for the name of the photo. we found 2 of them in one of the basements and as you say there would have been a mortuary too.. Not sure if we say it though or if it's been converted/demolished..

    Glad interest in the place has been sparked again, beautiful spot! I believe (Someone correct me if I'm wrong) that the mortuary is still standing BUT the slab has been relocated to a museum so there'd be little left to see.

    The photos are beautiful, even a little jealous as on both of the visits we made the clock tower was boarded up!

    The museum padded cell was from Rampton, not sure about the slab.
