Visited with Kevin Arnold and Za Gringo.

Open from 1869 to 2003 and specialising in Neurology, Atkinson Morley was the first ever hospital to make use of a CAT scanner. A bit, though not much, more info can be found here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atkinson_Morley_Hospital . For the most part the building was in good shape, there were a few artefacts about the place but it was largely empty.

Getting a checkup:

Another CAT scanner, this one was in complete darkness and had to be light painted:

They should have gone with Xiphosura:

It's dangerous outside. Oh, no, wait, that's on about in here!

That part was full of old documentation, journals, invoices and medical slides:

Nice exploration, the place is quite empty, but those scanners were a really good find. I liked all those colorful samples on glass (whaterever their proper name is) as well - there was lots of them in one of the adjacent building. There is a live in security in the hospital so we had to creep quietly most of the time - thanks to Za Gringo for being our guide. A few pics from me:
