Hi all!, this is a place I've been meaning to explore for quite sometime now, only one block known as 'East Villa' remains, the rest of the complex has been demolished to make way for housing.
First a little history...
Barrow Hospital was built in 1938, with construction starting in 1934. It was designed by Sir George Oatley as a new more open type of institution, the idea that the blocks were distributed evenly as opposed to one large building. It was temporarily used during WW2 as a Royal Naval Hospital, returning to civilian use. Despite the hospital in post war times being viewed as a "Progressive" institution, by the 21st Century the hospital and site was starting to decay. In 2005 it was dubbed Britains Dirtiest Hospital. After a sleuth of incidents and parts of the site starting to shut down, the planned closure in 2008 was brought forward to 2006, where it shut for good. For around 11 years the site sat empty before the construction of housing and demolition of the site began.

Here's what's left.
