    Heading down to the train station on the bus in my combat trousers and boots, some old lady was giving me 'looks' as if she fancied me :eek: :eek:

    After meeting up with Winchester at the train station, we headed up to the site on the bus looking like a squaddie and a burgler :eek:

    We both got a few looks as we got off, but nothing serious, so we headed over to the site.

    We decided to continue our explore of the Longest ward there. Once in, we checked some bits we'd already seen for changes.

    Heres One of the Lift Machinery;

    [​IMG]

    And one of a Confused Winchester wondering why i was taking so long up there;

    [​IMG]

    Some of my pictures from our Older trip - Mental Health Act Notice;

    [​IMG]

    And Everyones Favourite Telephone there;

    [​IMG]

    And a scarry thing to find in a disused Lunatic Asylum :eek: ;

    [​IMG]
    Brand new hacksaws holding a door open...:confused:

    In one of the cells upstairs, i also found these;

    [​IMG]
    Ex-patients interest maybe?

    Downstairs, we found a Patient Notice on a door (i don't remember it being there before :confused: );

    [​IMG]

    We then headed towards the East Wing of this building, where we found Clothes, Booklets, and a letter addressed to Winchester from the past :p (not really to him, but to another guy/ building called Winchester Words) Date was from April 1992;

    [​IMG]

    Then a shot of the condition that some of the Upstairs floor is in;

    After Finishing in this building, we decided to climb the Water Tower as it was our main objective tonight.

    Winchester got All the decent photos as he had Delayed Shutter settings which my camera sadly doesn't have :(

    Anyway, I got a few climbing up the tower.

    a BT Telephone - Found on every floor;

    [​IMG]

    And my only other shot from the tower;

    [​IMG]

    Have to see some of the pictures that W got from the top. They looked amazing :thumb

    But moving on with my lot, we explored another building near the tower and found out exactly why they're considered 'dangerous and unsafe' :p

    Picture of a Fire Notice (realise i shouldn't have used the flash now);

    [​IMG]

    And then, and errie sight. I was stood in a store room and felt the floor buckling under me so jumped out of the room after making W get the hell out the way lol :);

    [​IMG]

    And then the shot in the room next door :eek: ;

    [​IMG]
    Looks like something out of a horror film. fungus growing on the doorframe and allsorts.
    Safe to say, we gave the upstairs floor of that building a miss for our own safety

    And sorry guys... but it just has to be done.. a picture of.... the FUSE/ POWER ROOM :D :rolleyes:

    Park Prewett Report - 19/3/07 (hey, a month later :confused: )

    Me and Winchester returned here again today to get some daytime footage/shots.

    Was interesting to see this place in the day at last. But we experianced all 4 seasons of the year 3 times this afternoon. Had Sun, Rain, Snow, Sleet, Hail, Sun, Wind, Rain, Sun, Snow.. and so on :rolleyes:

    Once we arrived nearby, i geared up with my high vis and we got in no questions asked

    Anyway, selected a few of my best shots from today and included them below :thumb

    Spent most our time in the Pinewood building, Started with the upstairs first;
    [​IMG]

    View of the Tower from Pinewood;
    [​IMG]

    Rooftop shot from Pinewood Lift machinery room;
    [​IMG]

    Can't remember where the next few were taken, but they're all in the Pinewood Building still;

    First Self Portrait, Just because....;
    [​IMG]

    We then went out the back of Pinewood for W to get some external footage while i explored the drains;
    [​IMG]

    Then went into what we thought was the childrens ward. But infact turned out to just be a hostel.. Not much interesting in here. Floors caving in, upstairs unsafe, only interesting thing here was this wheelchair;

    Continued In Next Post...

    Returned to Pinewood briefly, before leaving to explore around the main site;

    Clock Tower;
    [​IMG]

    Same thing.. But i think it looks more dramatic with the new angle and stormy clouds in the background;
    [​IMG]

    Final shot before calling it a day;
    [​IMG]

    All in all it was a good way to start the week with a Monday explore. Cheers for inviting me again W, can't wait to see your shots :thumb

    (Really beginning to think you belong there now after finding the letter last time, and today, an unmarked letter from your uni :eek: :p)

    Whats left, for those who are interested in the development.
    Basically fuck all :wanker
    (sorry about the quality, its hard to expose properly when you've got 7 shots stiched together to make a pano like this, and the sun on some, and others in the shadows )
