No disrespect to your exploring skillzzzz or snaps, but is this what we have to look forward to in the future for hospital closures...? The first two pics were like "yep" and the rest were like "sigh". They didn't even have the courtesy to let the 70's decor mature!

None taken mate. I know what your saying and I myself love the decay, its better that way when its natural, I just got told it wont be around to see that happen though unfortunately, and I kind of put myself in the though I would rather photograph it fresh than in a week or two when the kids have been at it smashing it up or worse burning it.

I went here last weekend and it didn't go well at all the security uses a pedal bike to circle the perimeter and is stationed inside the hospital we opened the door to be greeted by a raging psycho. Bless him he suffered from small man syndrome.

I've been up a couple of times for a nosey. Looks like there is more than one security guard inside and a guard with a dog outside. Also Looked like there was also somebody fitting alarms / cctv on Monday. I don't think I'll be risking it. Think I'll stick to deserted sites.

yeah every door is now alarmed and the only door that is open to walk into is the main door and security are right behind it and he rides around the building and grounds. This place was clear for a few days of it being abandoned now its a no go area haha.
