    Visited here with Itinerant Child this afternoon/evening.

    Once onsite, we made our way down into the tunnels.

    Asbestos removal has progressed throughout the site, so most of the tunnels are well lit with site lights. Saying that, they aren't really tunnels, more a basement level - down below this level is another series of tunnels carrying all the pipes, cables and asbestos.

    There would have been access into the buildings across the street from this one, but the tunnels have been breezeblocked up fairly recently.

    Our goal was the chapel. Access isn't easy. We circled it in the tunnels, tried dropping down to the level below this, ended up on the roof, and in pratically every building. It was only after a bit of inventive climbing and some strokes of luck that we got in.


    By this time, it is dark, but there is no denying the beauty of this small chapel with ornate stained glass, tilework, and ceiling.

    This small box in the wall, dedicated to Sir Francis of Teck, seemed to have a Bramah lock securing it. I couldn't find the key in the chapel or adjoining office though. I wonder what is in here?

    I'm sure that Itinerant Child will have some excellent photos of the chapel, I was too busy arseing around trying to get shots like these to notice...

    Some plaster seems to have come down off the ceiling and landed on the floor in the chapel. I think as a response to this, there is now a vibration monitoring device in the side of the chapel. If you go there, don't kick it or knock it because it's making sure that they do no damage.

    We had a potter about on the rest of the site, visiting the morgue, a lecture theatre, some of the roofs, a load of tunnels, and a few other bits and pieces.

    The site is being rapidly demolished, and rooms stripped. If you want to see this place, you need to go and see it now.
