    Visited with Natevansate and briefly piesrme, one of the most frustrating explores I've done........loads of blocked corridors and what not so lots of circuiting round and over things..........spent a good 5hrs in there and knackered. Bit of brief history:

    West Park was the last mental hospital to be developed on the Horton Estate, having been planned since 1906, prior to the opening of neighbouring Long Grove asylum. Initial development to have been completed for opening in 1916. From 1917 the main hospital was largely complete and utilised by Canadian Military, and subsequently handed back to London county council. The complete hospital was anticipated to hold approximately 2,000 patients of mixed class.

    Current Status:

    Main hospital disused with exception of some male wards, the acute hospital, staff residences, parole villas and a few other villas in grounds. The site also contains Epsom and Ewell cottage hospital unit. The Chapel has been demolished. Arsonists have damaged the site with fires in 2003 in Honiton ward (female epileptic ward), on 30th September 2003 in the recreation hall, and Hollywood lodge on 16 th February 2005. Proposals for the site include a new hospital and development of mixed residential use. (2005)

    Big thanks to Winchester, the map was invaluable mate......
