After initially failing to do this on the part of bumping into Mr Security (a very friendly Mr Security I must add), we returned a few weeks later and had a very successful explore. This is actually the first big modern hospital explore I've done, and it was an enjoyable mooch for sure.


History

Sutton Hospital was a large facility, but from a lot of the site has now fallen into derelict following successive closures of the different wings and branches. The main Sutton Hospital site has been completely demolished, but many other parts of the hospital still remain with an uncertain future.

The current site management (Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust) are slowing moving facilities over to St Helier Hospital, which is on the north side of Sutton.

The wing we explored was the Chiltern Wing, a unit specialising in Mental health treatment.

The chiltern wing was initially closed for 6 months in August 2009 due to the discovery of legionella bacteria in water systems. However it seems it was never re-opened.


The Explore

Brewtal and I rocked up to here in middle of the day and gingerly found our way in uninterrupted, apart from a few teenagers roaming about hoping to find a way in. We quickly found the way inside and started the mooch about.

It quickly became clear that the copper fairies have been busy and have ripped out the copper pipes from the insulation in the ceilings and just about everywhere they could find it. Its safe to say its been well and truly trashed.

The size of the site meant that some parts were in a dire state, where others parts are quite clean.
We must have spent around 3 hours here, and even then we missed a few bits.

The cherry on top was finding the large boiler house and water tank.
I felt that we only scratched the surface of the whole site and we will certainly be returning to see more.

Another photo heavy Fisheye frenzy, a big site this.

Glad you cracked it at last! Sadly it seems more trashed than when we went, the amount of anti-ligature fittings in the place make you think of what it must have been like when it was in use...

Great report. Great shots as always. I love the stair well, and railing shots. That floor is pretty impressive too. Shame re the leaks, but all in all pretty clean in parts. Nice job. So jealous of your photography skills :D

I think they were being extremely serious. Unfortunately!! I believe these people make numerous accounts and just chance their arm at a reply. Probably hoping for an easy answer and way in pmsl. They dont seem to grasp the fact that the title says it all. Makes me so annoyed, get off your arses and research, if your serious you would do it. :banghead Ive also seen some members photos taken and shared on fb within some para groups. I also got a pm from someone I knew, who didnt know me. He is a scrap metal dealer. :wanker got no reply from me. Thats a given .

How bad is security here? I know you bumped into the nice security man, but how quickly did it take before they approached?

I’ve been in the open part of the hospital so many bloody times and never thought to go in the Chiltern Wing. Thing I was seen in there many years ago. Lol.

I’m pretty new to the site to be honest. I wont ask where it is or how to get in ; that I know I’d have to work out myself but if anyone is planning on going there it would be amazing to join you. Ideally my partner and myself would like to join others in exploring and finding places together, the more brains and all that! lol.
