    And now some details on the visit:

    Three of us visited as we where in Northampton for the weekend. Upon arriving I was blown away by the clock tower, as I'd never been to an Asylum with one before. Unfortunately I didn't realise how stripped and bare this place was, there is literally nothing left in most of the buildings.

    However it was great to just wander around this huge place but the three main parts that made the explore worth it were the Great Hall, although destroyed mostly by a fire, the scaffolding was amazing to climb up on and get some nice shots. Also the shower block was a nice little surprise, I'd seen the photograph of the 'Bloody' Handprints on the wall before but had no Idea it was here. Last but by no means least, the Clock Tower! It took us about 20 minutes to find and navigate our way there having up go up onto roofs and over broken floors we made it and the climb up is... different, and includes climbing up a pitch black pipe on a ladder.

    As soon as we reached the actual bell tower we were met with spectacular views of the site and surrounding lands, and also with the sight of three Police Officers climbing in through the same place we came in. They looked around and shouted to each other for about 30 minutes then left, oblivious to the fact that we were watching them all the time!

    On with the photographs, I decided on a Black and White documentation:


    The Great Hall:

    One of the Ward Corridors, nothing is left:


    The Shower Block:


    Our final goal:

    The Clock Mechanism:


    The views were spectacular:
