    The Explore:
    pulled out after about 5 hours by a gurkha secca, he was in there looking for some other group that luckily got us nabbed.. Lucky!

    The History:
    Severalls Hospital in Colchester, Essex, United Kingdom was a psychiatric hospital built in 1910 to the design of architect Frank Whitmore. It opened in May 1913.

    The 300-acre (120 ha) site housed some 2000 patients and was based on the "Echelon plan" - a specific arrangement of wards, offices and services within easy reach of each other by a network of interconnecting corridors. This meant that staff were able to operate around the site without the need to go outside in bad weather. Unlike modern British hospitals, patients in Severalls were separated according to their gender. Villas were constructed around the main hospital building as accommodation blocks between 1910 and 1935. Most of the buildings are in the Queen Anne style, with few architectural embellishments, typical of the Edwardian period.

    The hospital closed as a psychiatric hospital in the early 1990s following the closure of other psychiatric institutions. However, a small section remained open until 20 March 1997


    The Images: (i dont have originals anymore lost in a computer reboot squint your eyes you might not see the dreadful hdr...sorry? lol)

    Dramatically overcooked pics unfortunately mate, way too much for what"s acceptable on here (although going off some recent reports you may question this.......i know i have )

    Peoples personal opinion of HDR does not come into it, it!"s the Forum rules mate

    And you along with everyone else posting reports, need to add some History of the place as not everyone reading will know it.

    Apart from that well done getting in ;)

    I doubt you can mate well not enough to pass lol

    As i said it"s not a personal thing it"s a Forum requirement which sets us apart from the other Forums, no overcooked HDR & naming of sites etc etc

    Some HDR pics look dramatic but others look like what i imagine taking Acid makes your world look like ;)

    Although it states no overcooked images when you post, what we need is the FAQS back to which we can refer people too even if like before they never read them lol

    Or decide once and for all what is the 28DL policy on processing images ? if there still is one ? and enforce that policy instead of allowing some people to take the piss & ruin members eyesight lol

    depending on how many pics you have taken on this memory card since you may be able to recover some of the originals.it is a long shot as the report is a year old but maybe worth a try
