On our little daytrip up to the North East I thought it would be rude to not have a look at one of the morgues that have been doing the rounds for so long so chose the county hospital.. started off by almost walking into secca as we came over a hill and saw his little hut.. had a little wander around the hospital but not much to see in there really, eventually found the morgue, grabbed a few shots and then heard an angry secca guy outside.. turned out to be very friendly in the end and had us there nattering for what seemed like eternity :)

The History
County hospital, Durham was a hospital in Durham City built in 1853 from public donations and subscriptions, until services were moved to Lanchester Road Hospital on the Earls House Hospital site on the outskirts of the city.

On an elevated point in the City of Durham, is a spacious building of stone, supported by donations and public subscriptions and erected in 1853, in the Elizabethan style, at a cost of £7,500, and will hold 44 patients. In 1867 male and female convalescent wards were added at a cost of £2,400 as a memorial of the late Dean Waddington, who in 1865 contributed £2,000 to the funds of the hospital, and subsequently a further sum of £2,000, and finally bequeathed by will £6,000 more. Additional wards were added by the late John Eden esq., of Beamish Park, who gave a sum of £2,000 towards their erection, and bequeathed a further sum of £10,000. These were opened December 2, 1886.

That was far from the case when I was there... I strolled all around the place, inside and out and didn't see a soul.. seems a huge waste of police resource to wander around fields all day...
