    [Mod note: This is a nursing home so I wasn't sure were to put it.. Sorry :eek:]

    The first time I visited this place was in May, but it was dark and I was very tired. So I only took 2 pictures. For months I have been meaning to re-visit but I finally got around to it today with my friend, Spotlight.

    After making a rather blatant and obvious entry across the road when all the traffic from the nearby schools [all 4 of them.. 3 x Secondary and 1 x Primary] was going past, it was pretty easy. (Remind me to re-think the time for any future visits, eh?)

    We gained access using a new way that had been kicked in.. :rolleyes: And found it to be incredibly damaged in there. But it still had a few stories to tell.

    Rather touchingly I found a jar marked "Lourdes Water" which made me stop and think about the fact that I was standing in someones flat - were they quite possibly lived until they died. The fact is - this little room was their everything, and you find little notes written by them, and little objects.. Its all very saddening. I found the atmosphere a bit depressing at times. Also, Rather surprisingly - The little emergency box to call a nurse was on in one room!

    There was an overgrown garden in the center of the building, as the building is more like 2 squares with the centers being little gardens.

    There is another flat on the site which I didnt visit, as I could hear gushing water through the windows. Overall the site is in a terrible state - which adds to the rather sad atmosphere. I find the destruction incredible considering a matter of about 20 meters away is the active part of the Nursing Home... In full view.

    Now onto the pictures!

    1. Rather dark in this place.. and all we had was my 2AA minimag - Which is notoriously unreliable. :|

    2. Overgrown garden

    3. As seen from the opposite roof..

    Yeah, I agree about the amount of pics.

    Just that time constraints combined with lack of light posed a real problem. Hopefully, My friend will get his ass into gear and post some of his pictures up! :D

    Edit: A few more piccies up

    1. The ever-strong chair...

    2. Memories...
