    Tucked behind a new housing estate in Alton, Hampshire is the remaining wing of The Lord Mayor Treloar Hospital. This building was not demolished with the rest of the hospital because it is listed (found here http://www.flashearth.com/?lat=51.139715&lon=-0.992009&z=17.1&r=0&src=msl) tbig thanks to Lillimouse (for pointing out it existed) and RemadE for inviting me along for an explore. Armed with my new camera (Canon 400D) I was picked up and we set off for Alton when passing through the new estate of houses you don't know the building exists until you are at the back of the houses and you see the large derelict building sitting silently on the hill side. Having reports of the building being trashed and used by the local chavs for drinking.. i didn't have too high hopes on the place.. Gathering our kit we made a quick ascent up the hill and to the access point. On getting in.. I was
    reminded on something very important.. that I was not to close ANY doors.. I found this out to be very relevant because someone had taken the handles of all the closing doors.. so unless force was used from the opposite side.. If a door closed.. you werent getting out in a hurry!. The building is very dark inside due to all windows and doors being breeze blocked up on the first and second floor. The third floor however are all open (although its not access unless you can fly). Ok.. ok.. On with the photos..

    Bear in mind its my first explore with the new camera!.. :(:rolleyes:

    If you wondered where to go? ;)

    There was another white building (shown on flash earth to be just along to the left of Robertson House but its really open and right next to the footpath so you would be spotted getting in within about a minute!

    Hi - you are in my old bedroom looking at the funny brick building! It was a water tower. The house was lovely despite the carpet and I lived there for 7 months in 1994 while doing my orthopaedic certificate. It is in a sorry state. Everything was wooden and beautifully cared for - it was one of the happiest periods of my life - I am sad to see it like this. We had such a laugh living on the third floor! Parties...

    So you have any idea if it's still there? We've just been, got as far as Robertson close but it was too dark this evening to see (we weren't very well prepared)
