Having put it off for far too long, I finally got around to visiting the main building. After a while wandering around, I found a bumped into some other explorers - one of whom is I believe a rather experienced member of this forum - and eventually found a rather obvious entrance. I must say, it was worth all the hype, although I get the impression that I'm missing a fair bit because of the demolision. I will hopefully be returning this Sunday if anyone would care to PM me about it.

Anyway, on with the pictures. I didn't get as many as I could, because my battery died and I forgot to charge my spares.:banghead

A couple of the keys actually produced sound!

I don't understand quite how this happened.

In all, it was a very good day. It ended when the friendly security guard came and escorted us from the premises. If only my other encounter with security had been so pleasant and understanding. Definitely more to see though. I shall return. A few more pictures can be seen here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/27739561@N07/sets/72157608797848675/

I visited twice afterwards, but have only just sorted the photographs out. Here are some more:

Note how the corridor is even further gone than the week before.

Now week three. My best visit to date - explored probably the majority of the site and the water tower. I also finally got a shot of the chapel.

Why does this ward have no floor? I thought demolition hadn't affected the wards yet?

Of course, this place barely needs demolition. Vincent/Vanburgh.
