    Just getting round to sorting loads of photo's out from last year...

    Went to have a mooch up at St Marys to see what was left of the place. They've done a good job converting many of the buildings, there's a small amount left to see now but not much.

    Bit of brief history. Was built 1910, designed by Hine, and was the last asylum project he worked on. The site closed in 1995 and services moved to Bensham Hospital, which is actually a lot closer to Gateshead than Stannington.

    There is not a great deal left to see inside. The hall and water tower were not accessible. Might as well post them anyway.

    Cheers, it was pretty much intact with no damage or graffiti until they started stripping it as it is in the middle of no where.

    St Mary's was one of the best, it was derelict longer than Cane Hill but remained untrashed probably due to its very remote location
