    This is an old report from March14 another 1 i had forgot about and found while sorting out my hard drive, visited with another 28DL member Dogtown.

    History (taken from a previous report)
    Derbyshire Royal Infirmary (DRI) was established in 1810 on land formerly part of Derby's Castlefield estate on land near what is now Bradshaw Way and the A6 London Road. It was known as the Derbyshire General Infirmary at the time.

    In 1890 a Typhoid outbreak sweeped through the hospital, and the buildings design was blamed. The hospital was entirely demolished. A year later Queen Victoria laid the foundation stone of what would become Derbyshire Royal Infirmary. The neo-Jacobean building was completed in 1894, and its main features were its 'Onion' shaped domed towers and its central corridor which ran the length of the hospital.

    The hospital was expanded at several points in the 20th century, the most visible being the still used Wilderslowe Tower and the now disused A+E building built in 1970. The DRI as a result is an architectural mish-mash with the original hospital at its heart.

    The majority of the infirmary eventually closed to the public in 2009, with accident and emergency one of the first departments to move over the nearby Royal Derby Hospital - the second largest hospital in the East Midlands. Only a small NHS walk-in clinic known as London Road Community Hospital now functions on the site.

    Hey guys,
    Might be a bit far fetched now but is this place still accessible?
    Cheers

    I was in there as a kid, with suspected appendicitis. Also my father, after his heart attack.
    My late Aunt died in there. Seriously..

    Sorry Stooge KM is right.... It's demolished. I did a reccy the other day and it's rubble, the only thing left is some houses on the roadside on osmanton road and another building the opposite side ( which might be worth a little look) but it's all gone now! As far as accessibility it's a little fence to climb over. It's just about finding the best place to climb that won't get you caught, not sure of Secca situation tbh.

    Sorry pal lol
