Let me begin with a few shamelessly stolen links to a little history, old photographs and re-development info:

London Road Community Hospital - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Derbyshire Royal Infirmary site is a step closer to being turned into a new "urban village" | Derby Telegraph

Derby Royal Infirmary 186

From discussion with other explorers who have been here before it seems like parts of this site open up and close on a regular basis, making each explore different in terms of access. This was my first explore with Waterboy and it was very enjoyable indeed. Sadly I believe that the porn room is now closed :( also the main tower block of flats where the best cityscape view is :(

I do have rather a lot of photographs; this is because I would like to share with everyone the cool stuff we found on our explore, they're not meant to be the best shots ever so please excuse if some are of poorer quality.


This is the lower part of the high rise; I believe this was student flats with the added bonus of a lecture theatre, small IT suite, interesting foyer/former library and one angry homeless man (not pictured).

This is the main hospital building, I will be including a compulsory toilet and ward shot because I haven't posted either in a while!

This was a bizarre room which was divided in to two and had a sign saying "Clean Matresses Only" I am guessing it might be infection control testing, if anyone knows what it's for please let me know!
