    My brother pointed this place out to me during my stay in Beziers a couple of weeks ago, it was some kind of clinic rather than a public hospital as far as I'm aware. I was a little bit unprepared for exploring in the dark so had to make do with my phone as a torch. As soon as I'd managed to pull myself in I caught sight of a really worried looking face staring straight at me which nearly gave me a heart attack, I froze and stared back wondering whether to retreat or not.....after about 20 seconds of awkardness I raised a hand and waved, at that point I realised it was my own reflection in a mirror across the room :rolleyes:

    I struggled to find much information about the place except that it was opened in 1997 and closed just six years later in 2003, it has been abandoned ever since. The building is five storeys high with a fairly basic layout of rooms, corridors and nurse's stations on each floor. Each level is made up of individual rooms rather than wards with nice en suite bathrooms so I guess it was a private clinic of some sort. The majority of the place was stripped bare but there were a few clues left behind including a room full of old radiology equipment. On reaching the fourth floor it became apparent that part of the top floor had collapsed through the ceiling, the floor was too unstable up there to go much further so I watched the sun setting over Beziers through a window and made my way back down.

    I forgot to get an exterior shot on my arrival so had to make do with a rubbish one from my phone as my camera had died....

    Nice ones D, look at you all laid back in just a T shirt and sunglasses :p: All good stuff also Flickr mate but for some reason i prefer the window view of the stairs and of course the Sunset :)

    Deffo had a good time on your mini-break, did your brother even see you that week ? This location looks even more run down than Sheffield.........maybe

    And you can"t beat crapping yourself over self reflection, works everytime :laugh

    The target posters good, just because i used to have one of those old Lazer Helmets though :)

    The Regeneration equipment is for when you"ve killed your Camera battery by using too much flash mate, it brings it back to life :rolleyes:

    And no P7? tut tut i thought i"d taught you better :)

    I can see you visiting your brother more often in future.
