    Visited today with Chauffeur. We covered the whole of the first floor, half of the ground floor. Need a return to suss the cellars - and the watertower is just screaming out for a sunrise stakeout!

    Security - laughable
    Access - laughable also !

    I must agree with Smurfinator - there is a strange feel about this place, definately foreboding, as if you are never alone!

    Work on converting this beautiful complex into flats is evident, and for an abandoned hospital with very few intact windows it was surprisingly clean in the most part.

    there is enough history of this place in other threads, so on with the pics
