    First of 5 sites that day on a monster 200 mile roadtrip.

    Glad we finally cracked this one. Thanks to the guys who supplied info on this place, you know who you are :thumb

    The building has been quite stripped, but there are still some of the original features to see. The ceiling detail alone makes the site for me. Spent about an hour & half in here, but had to abort when we heard voices from inside the building. :eek: It could have been other explorers, but we decided not to hang around and find out. So if that was you, go on, put your hand up!

    Future explorers be aware, the building is decaying rapidly, and King Mongoose commented his foot almost went through the floor upstairs.

    The site is huge, so will have to make another trip to see the other half of the building, including the famous staircase. We were amusingly clocked on the way out by a local, who smirked at us as we scrambled out the bushes.


    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 as St John’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.
