Report - Kingsway Hospital, Derby, Nov' 10

There's been a lot of history and reports on this place recently, so instead i'll show what's planned to happen to it in the future:

"Hundreds of extra homes look likely to be built on the former site of Derby's Kingsway Hospital. Independent inspectors have backed plans for the development, which are larger than originally planned. The report follows a public inquiry that ran from October 2003 to August 2004 which looked at plans for new homes and businesses across the city. Nearly 1,500 people commented on the plans, including ones for a business park and housing at Kingsway.

The inspectors' report clears the way for an extra 500 homes to be built and reduces the amount set aside for business development from 15 to seven hectares. Derby City Council will consider which of the recommended changes to accept. Councillor Lucy Care, cabinet member for planning, transportation and environment, said, "This is a thorough report and I am pleased at the overall level of support for the council's proposals. People will get an opportunity to have their say on these changes before the plan is finalised.""

In this light, i would tell people to get here while you can - but only if you don't mind being caught by a lot of police.
We (me, flip and two non 28days users) arrived at 5.30am and got in for 6am; having been here two nights previous - leaving an entrance for ourselves.
From here, we sat and waited out in the main hall until daylight before we started our explore.
The whole place is pretty stripped, but there are a few interesting things to be seen in the place.
Unfortunately, we didn't get around to the baths in the daylight or the morgue at all as we got clocked by security and escorted out by police at 9am.
We were greeted by six police cars, security and a dog unit.
I feel fairly bad for how much money in police resources we wasted, but it did seem a bit over the top.

From here, we didn't give up though. We trotted off to Sleaford Maltings and Lincoln digger graveyard - both of which i'll report later =]

Here's some pictures of where we did manage to see:





















The first car that caught us, before all 5 others came around to see us.
