    Hey Folks,

    This is my first ever go at urban exploration in an official capacity (went to Holloway sanatorium in Virginia water a few times as a teenager in the 80's but that was just to impress the girls that were with us). So first up I just would like to say hello.-- hello :)

    Was driving past a while ago and thought this may be as good as place as any to break said exploration virginity!!

    Don't know much about the place, google doesn't really say much but it looks like it housed mental health patients for a short while.

    Was a complete mess inside, quite smelly but still was a fun half hour :)

    Good first report, though I would definitely count Holloway sanatorium as proper exploring!

    If you don't even have the initiative to type three words into Google then I can assure you that you're in the wrong hobby.

    Good to see the inside of this, had a look around here a couple of years ago and it was well sealed up. I think there were pikeys camped out the front for months before that.

    @Iain Steele - wind it in mate. It's easy to find without the need to ask anybody. I just highlighted 'The meadows - knaphill' and did a google search and this was on the first page...

    Want a map...

    Probably took 90 seconds in all.

    visited this place at the weekend, had a good 30 mins look around before getting caught by police. I think it was the pub next door that called. it also has a official squat sign on the door.
