    Intro

    So some help from Zombizza and Oakley and I was quite excited to get here, so thanks for helping me with that! This place is pretty sweet and we found some nice bits of rat in test tubes and animal testing ephemera. Just going to stick this in NP so a few can get the chance to visit it, I know Zombizza wants to go for personal reasons and I'm sure many others will want to see the rats lungs and stuff...

    History

    The building was part of St Thomas' Hospital which was established in 1173. According to historical records St Thomas's Hospital Medical School was founded in about 1550. It was admitted as a school of the University of London in 1900 but remained a constituent part of St Thomas' Hospital until 1948 when it formally became part of the university. In 1982 it merged with the medical school at Guy's Hospital to form the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals. In turn UMDS was absorbed by King's College London School of Medicine and Dentistry, but the dentists have since been split out into The Dental Institute.
    Unlike the hospital which in recent times dropped the possessive "s", the medical school continued with the original spelling.

    The building is described as:

    And is grade II listed (http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/en-204399-block-9-of-st-thomas-s-hospital-medical-).

    What is block 9?

    Block 9 was a major part of the medical school campus, it housed the student biology laboratories, animal testing laboratories, lecture theaters, cell pathology and much more. The building has a lot of rooms, labs, cage rooms, hall, corridors etc.
    It became empty and derelict when the medical schools of London merged and later this building was not needed.

    My visit

    I heard it was doable from Oakley and then Zombizza put up the lead practically the same time.
    The night before I was out and ready to meet Gabe, The raw and a few others for some high stuff in the city. Had some time to kill before I met them and seeing as we had organised to visit the place properly the day after, I went to check access and security. All was fine and we were in the next day with UrbanAlex, Boomstick84, Gabe and The_Raw. Had a laugh and saw some nice labs and specimens. We got through the site finding needles, bio hazardous waste, poison boxes, glass tubes with bits of rat in them, some mad sciencey glassware (Including the space bong) and some nice decay as well.
    I hope you enjoy my dodgy report and pics, I'm sure The_Raw will show me up a bit with his shots! Cheers! :thumb

    My God
    I cannot believe that is my school. I'm shocked!
    Did you see the library on the first floor at all?

    Nice report slayaaaa, had a very moody atmosphere this place and loved going through the collection of fucked up things in jars. With it being situated inside the grounds of perhaps the most prominent live hospital in London this definitely needs to remain in NP for the forseeable, especially given the fact they have some human samples in there, I think we know how much the NHS would love to find people poking around through those :eek:

    I remember when we walked past this and saw a way in. We just imagined it would be a shell though. Pretty interesting stuff inside, I'm surprised it's still there after all these years given the location. Nice one.

    Driven / cycled past this and always assumed it would be stripped inside.

    brilliant. just showed my other half the pics and she recognised picture 20 as the lab she did a bleeding time test on herself and showed me the scar on her arm. We did some weird experiments and learning in this place.
