    I passed through Salisbury the other week and spotted this range of buildings. Sadly I wasn't able to get out and have a look and I live far too far away to attempt it so I was wondering if any of you guys knew what it was? I can't see anything from street view that might give a clue and I can't find any information on 28 days either.

    Street view

    Maps

    They cover quite a sizeable area and there are some more boarded up buildings on the north side of the road too.
    Looks like a pretty interesting site, so someone go explore it!

    Old Manor Hospital. It's absolutely empty, except for an old cooker, and a post-it note. Seriously.

    The hall might be worth a look if you can get in. I've heard it's small but perfectly formed.

    Have just come back from a rec on this place, I count approx 4 building to explore, lots of open ground and a busy main road. Should be interesting. Anyone got any hints or tips for this one?

    Hi,
    only just joined the forum, so a bit late in replying to the post. I know this site very well! There is a theatre hall, the main hospital some old houses and some more modern buildings. There is also an underground tunnel which takes you underneath the main hospital (there used to be a tunnel leading from the hospital leading down to Salisbury Train Station, but this has been cemented up now, although you can get a reasonable distance under the main house. The theatre has real potential for some really good photographs -has a really spooky feel to it, but so does the whole site!

    The only problem is that there have been loads of lead thefts on there and the Police pay close attention to it-Salisbury Police station is only about 100 metres away!

    I used to have the keys to this place, but sadly no more!

    If you need to know anything else, just ask!

    Snappy

    Hi,
    Which tunnel? The one leading down to the Train Station or under the hospital?
    I was told by the site manager that there was a tunnel leading down to Salisbury train station, but they concreted it up. I can see if I can find anything out about it. The tunnel under the hospital itself is definitely there as I have been to the end of it. you can see it from the road, it starts with a section above ground. I never managed to get inside the main house though! I would love to go in there!

    Are you from Salisbury?

    Yeah. I've been in the tunnels and main buildings, but not the hall. I don't think there's a tunnel to the station.

    Me too. The tunnel down to the train station was meant to have been blocked up years ago according to the old boy who used to manage the place, but I only have his word for it.

    A guy I know has a book about the place, I'll ask him. The Theatre hall is definitely worth a look though! I haven't been in for about 4 years though.

    No I wasn't really taking pictures at the time. There are a few mirrors in there and they are massive. The stage was very ornate, there was the original projector in there too. The floor boards had been lifted, probably for the copper pipe underneath it! But as I say, it was about 4 years ago since i was in there, it could be a right old state now.
