    I've had my eye on this for a little while, but before I get to that, the history:

    The history was taken from here, and there's more history covering the whole century rather than just what's covered above. Read as much as possible, it was a wonderful community project.


    I first found out about this place a couple of months ago. My first recce was unsuccessful however, with every window boarded and the single access I spotted through the roof turned out to be a false start. Still, I kept my eye on the place from time to time, and found out a bit about it while I waited.

    So when driving past recently I spotted a window with the board torn down, I was thoroughly looking forward to finally seeing inside. This would be a good one.

    No. With full knowledge of the history of the place, it was very, very depressing to see it in such a state of disrepair. The clues were there when I was on the roof to be fair - missing tiles and holes galore, I just hadn't put 2 and 2 together. But I thought the place has been kept like a fort, it's bound to be good inside.

    Not at all - the place was fucked.

    I couldn't believe how badly the place had deteriorated - it was like a miniature locked denbigh, damp and peeling everywhere. In a year the floors and ceilings will come down and there'll be no saving it.

    The lighting was terrible - the only light coming from my entrance, the odd sliver around slightly badly fitted or torn boarding, a couple of sky lights in the ceiling of the bathrooms and toilets, and the holes in the roof.

    Don't get me wrong, there was plenty there to see. But knowing how much community spirit had gone into building and keeping the hospital running - a thought that was reinforced by two big "This wing was donated by..." signs in a couple of places - coupled with the near perfect darkness shrouding the site, I almost didn't want to keep looking.

    All in all, you'd probably call it a successful explore. I call it a massive disappointment. I genuinely hope a buyer is found soon, because as I mentioned above, in a year I don't think it will be worth saving.

    Thanks for reading.
