Quite a popular site this one so i'll just copy some history from Rustybones

"By the mid-1920s, the existing City of Bristol Mental Hospital at Stapleton was suffering from serious overcrowding. Construction began in 1934 and although the hospital was not officially opened until 3 May 1939, Barrow Hospital received its first patients in May 1938 with the complex still only half-built. In 2003 the Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust announced its intention to close Barrow Hospital by 2008. By 2004 only three residential wards remained open. Demolition began in 2009 and as of March 2013 6 buildings remain standing."

Still quite a lot to see here in my opinion and didn't bump into a single soul during the visit.

There was also an underground (maintenance tunnel?) underneith the hospital that we could of went in but it didn't look to nice.

On with the photos
