    I didn’t think I would get the chance to see this place again, and this was one of my favourite explores…
    I was very keen to go back. And man was it worth it – I saw 4 times more than my last visit three years ago. It was a real privilege to see the cells, the hall, the grand staircase; and some more those iconic honeycomb ceilings. The building is extremely dicey in places – a lot worse than I remembered. Some floors are wonky, some floors are rotten… and some floors are missing altogether. That said, the natural decay in here is awesome.

    The site is being converted for housing. A lot of the foliage has been cleared, building work has begun, and the water tower controversially demolished.



    Built under the name Lincolnshire County Lunatic Asylum in 1852, set in 120 acres of grounds. In 1940, female patients were transferred around the UK to make way for an emergency department for the war effort. The newly established NHS took control in 1948 and by the 1960’s it was known asStJohn’s Hospital. The Hospital was closed in 1989, since then it has been sold and gradually been demolished to make way for housing leaving just the main building.

    nice set of shots, it's a shame about all the scaffolding around the stairs, really spoils the view

    it is a shame about the scaffolding, but at least that means its probably going to be restored.
    At least I got to see it
