    I like to start of the year with a derelict hospital :D

    And this place has been on the list a long long time, so very pleased to see this. The site has been closed a while, and suffered vandalism. The original wooden boarding has been supplemented with metal sheeting. Bit of a tough one to crack, as there are now security and PIRs. With these measures, the building is in fair condition, and in a photographic state of decay.

    Group explore with KM Punk, Lost Explorer, Yorrick and a non member.

    Thanks to Darbians for tips on this place.


    The hospital in Melton Mowbray started life as Hill House and was built pre 1760. In 1840 it was renamedWyndham Lodge and rebuilt in Wartnaby stone in 1874.
    In 1920 Col Richard Dalgleish purchased Wyndham lodge as a gift to the town. In honour of those who had fallen during the great war it became known as Melton & District War Memorial Hospital.

    The hospital closed in 2005. There are currently plans to convert the Grade II listed building to retirement homes.

    Not happy with all my photos, sorry but I’m going through a learning curve with my new lens.
