    Caught the tail end of a report on South Today about the opening of a new mental health care centre in Swindon following the closure of 2 other facilities Oak House in Wroughton and Elsie Millin Court in Gorse Hill. Could be worth a look to the locals....I'm unsure whether the Elsie Millin building is still there but its slap bang in the middle of the development if it is....Oak House is isolated and already boarded up on Google Maps so could be alright.

    I keep meaning to go for a first explore of some old buildings having done a few underground trips.

    Just popped on here after registering a long time ago.

    I drive past Oak House quite frequently and keep thinking I should go for a look but life is short and I've got a lot of other stuff to do.

    Maybe I should go for a look.

    It looks like a stay there would turn a cheerful person suicidal.

    The Southern building at Oak House has been boarded up for many years.

    Both buildings are defo boarded up. The Southern one has been like that for a long time and it's fetid. The Northern one looks a little better, it still has it's glass at least. There's been a bit of damage though, and a fire...

    No there is a way in, and well worth a look around!
