    If that's hinting at a group explore then I could be in.

    More info:

    If you currently access services at The London Chest Hospital, these services will be moving to the new Barts Heart Centre at St Bartholomew’s Hospital over a four-week period from 27 March – 29 April 2015.

    Would love to visit here - morbid but my grandfather died there in the late 80s.

    Hi all this is my first go at putting anything on here , I spent 3 months in the Lch around 12 years ago and I have lived around it all my life, it is a fantastic building and some of the architecture is amazing from carved architraves to decorative plaster mouldings, sadly the hospital closed for the last time on the 30th April , workmen are around at the moment putting hoarding up around the exterior railings (8 foot sheets of osb) and there is security too , as I only live around the corner from there and walk my dog around it every day il try to keep you all posted , il also when things have quitend down see if I can go in there and have a look

    Visited here in late April with wobs92. There is 10 foot wooden hoarding round the majority of the site now. But not all of it when we visited. No easy way in but after scoping it out for around 20 minutes we took our chance.

    The site is pretty small compared to somewhere like Severalls so you feel there is nowhere to hide straight away when on site. And so it proved to be the case. After finding an entry point to one of the buildings and mooching round inside for around 20 minutes we heard a radio further down the corridor. Spooked as hell, we ran back to our entry point and as we were making our way out there was security waiting for us. Scared the crap out of us. Luckily they didn't seem too bothered and they let us leave site with no more said. Ah well, first time we have been caught by security...had to happen sooner or later.

    Me and wobs92 are still on a learning curve with exploring but we are getting there having done around 15 explores so far. We saw this on the lead/rumour area and wanted to be one of the first in and post a report. But then we realised once we were in, what's the point if it's not decayed at all...it's just a hospital? Probably a bit different on industrial/leisure sites but for this kind of site it felt to us anyway to defeat some of the point of why we do this. Anyways we took a few pics with the Iphone as we didn't have the SLR...not worthy of a report though. IMO there are far better places in London and beyond to use your time with :)
