    The Towers Hospital in Leicester, an institution for people with mental illness for over 140 years, closed its beds in the year 2000 and saw its last outpatients in 2013.
    The male side George Hine house... myself and goldie have covered quite a bit of the Towers over the years, and this was nice to finish off several years of exploring..

    After doing the female side some years back it was good to finally see parts of the male side last year. Bit of an interesting one, not knowing what to expect round the next corner.

    Very sweet guys. Decent sets of flicks to compliment a rather appealing looking place at that.

    Yes it's still there!..I went with Lost Explorer yesterday but it was a failed explore. We walked around the perimeter fence and was quite surprised at the size of this place!
    It's a lot bigger than we first thought. When we went there were a couple of asbestos survey vans present, as well as lights on in the security office and a security van!! :banghead
    Well done with the report Matt & Goldie, some excellent shots and really well documented. :thumb
