    The Day
    We really wanted Lluesty Hospital to be our first asylum or Denbigh just because of the feel of the place, but doesn't seem like either will be happening too soon, as there seems to be a growing number of places really close to us. Anyway, made the one train (amazing!) up to Cheadle to check out this bombshell, didn't have much hopes for the inside but just because it's an asylum, we decided to bun it and go for it.

    History (from another report)
    Cheadle Royal Hospital, formerly known as the Manchester Royal Lunatic Asylum, was a psychiatric hospital built in 1848 – 1849. As of 2010, the majority of the original site became part of the Priory Group, which offers comprehensive inpatient mental health services. One building, known locally as ‘South House’ has been left abandoned.

    The Visit
    As you'll see if you watch the video, we were caught by a security guard from the business park side of the fence, so before we'd even accessed the site, but turns out the guy was one of the nicest we'd met, and he gave us a better way of access into the building! Once inside the fence, it is ridiculously easy, seems like the council has given up protecting it which is a little worrying as it is very dodgy inside, but as long as you stay on concrete, you should be alright.

    There is barely anything in the building artefact wise, which was a little disappointing but I still enjoyed the explore nevertheless. The other downside was that it is full with pigeons and they were constantly jump scaring us around every corner.

    Pictures
    Seen as almost nothing is boarded up anymore, a lot of light is let into this place so pictures came quite naturally.

    Think I did OK, please leave me some feedback :)

    Another fine set of shots, looks like you have made the place look quite nice.

    Never been here myself, it looks well gone, but may have to go one day just to get it ticked off the list.

    Hi, a friend and I are looking for some cool places to explore, we're beginners. Unfortunately, most places seem to be demolished or converted recently!! Could you give some info about how to get into this hospital and the general area and security?? thanks.
