    Hello Everyone

    This will be my first post on here, I am fairly new to photography/Exploring

    Yesterday afternoon i got the chance to go inside The Old Manor Salisbury, The plant hire company I own currently has equipment on hire to site workers within the premises.

    Having lived in Salisbury for 24 years before i moved to Southampton this has always been a place of great interest to me over the years & it was truly incredible to finally get inside!

    Unfortunately i did not have my SLR with me so these photos are from my iPhone, but I should be heading back there this week with my Camera to get some much better shots!

    Here is a brief description(Taken from Wikipedia) on the Asylum.

    The Old Manor Hospital was a psychiatric hospital in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England. It functioned first as a Victorian private licensed house called Fisherton House or Fisherton House Asylum from the early 19th century. It was the largest private madhouse in the United Kingdom. In 1924 following a change of proprietors it was renamed Old Manor Hospital and in 1955 it was amalgamated into the National Health Service. From 1813 to 1955 it was owned and managed by members of the same family.



    Anyway i hope you all enjoy!!

    That tunnel looks quite interesting! You might want to check some of your pics as they look like they need to be cropped properly so you don't get the black and white blocks surrounding them and that last pic looks like it's an attachment rather than an in line pic. Also can you add a date.

    BTW are you sure the owners are ok with this?

    It was very interesting, I'm hoping to get more photos of the Tunnel when i return, it was useless with my phone camera due to being so dark in here!

    Just added a date to the post & I will edit to photos as soon as i get chance this evening :)

    Yes all is ok with the photos, unfortunately this site is going to be fully stripped & refurbished into a new building soon!

    Dodgy cropping aside, this is a decent first report pal :thumb especially like that phone-box, and the very interesting looking tunnel to the train station...I'd be down there like a rat up a drain-pipe
