    Colindale hospital aka. 'The Central London District Sick Asylum'

    Quite how this place has escaped exploration for so long i do not know! Its a cracker!! nothing in London you say? How about a nice derelict asylum, largely unheard of by the masses let alone explored. Closed since 1996 and crammed to the roof with stuff, decayed, yet pretty intact. Florecent tubes still flicker and buzz to break the slience, rooms full of hospital parafinalia, x-ray machines, beds, patient records. Yes that will do me nicely thank you very much!

    This is far from a comprehensive report, it covers few main areas, the hall, social club, laundry and xray dept maybe a 1/4 of the place if your lucky. Time has not been on my side with the several visits ive made and priority has been exploration, not photography so you will have to bare with me. I will be back for more as soon as i can! :thumb

    this was interesting, behind the stage there were roller shutter doors.. covering this! The hall must have been modernised at somepoint i guess. Nice stained glass too.

    Been back today with a few others. Struck gold in the subways! Old medical equipment, books, vintage suitcases full of stuff, patient records, a fully kitted out radio studio!!! Also hit admin, the modern block, mortuary and boilerhouse.

    Loving this place!
