    History


    Report

    There's only one 4 o'clock I like to see in my day and it's not the one in the morning. Unfortunately, on this occasion, I would be waking up at this ungodly hour to set off on another of those explores that I eyeballed some years ago when I first saw it reported by those Pompey lads in 2010 (fair play to you)! In those days, it looked like the workers had just left for the day, everything remained. 3 years later and it's comparatively bare looking although some nice parts still remain. After spending a good couple of years seeing pretty much zero urban explorer traffic, Haslar came back on the map. Security must have let their guard down and every Tom, Dick and Harry wanted a slice of the Haslar pie and it ended up a big time tourist route. I decided to let things die down again and bide my time.

    Development of the site was imminent so it was time to put words into action.

    I left the comfort of by bed, delirious from the depravity of missing sleep. I stepped outside, it's September and whilst the days are still Summery, the nights bring back the reality that Winter is just around the corner. Nobby and I arrived at Haslar with the first glimmer of sunlight starting to break the horizon. We wanted to make our entrance under the cover of darkness, some parts of the site are very open and security patrols are regular. The guards here aren't stupid, they know we're coming, they try a variety of hide and seek tactics to try and outsmart us. This place is an absolute fortress, it will probably go down as one of the hardest places I've found a way into. We tried every trick in the book including some impressive displays of vertical agility which lead us to a way in. We celebrated silently but celebrations were short-lived, we'd made our way into a detached auxiliary building with little interest. Back to the drawing board. Metaphorically speaking, a chain is only as strong as it's weakest link and out of the vast number of links in this chain, we managed to find the weak one, just at the point we were about to give up. It was like playing the Krypton Factor, the puzzle was solved and we were in!

    We spent the next few hours wandering the vast array of corridors, wards and treatment rooms photographing anything interesting that remained. Comparing earlier reports from Haslar, a lot had changed. Most things had been cleared out but bizarrely, all manner of X-ray machines, CT and MRI scanners remained. Now hot, tired and fatigued, it was nearing lunch time, the food they serve here is shit so we planned our exit. We nearly had an encounter with a gardner/groundsman but some ducking and diving saw us back onto the streets of Gosport heading back for the car and my motorway services sarnies!

    Big thanks to Chrisr86 for his help.
