This one was a bit of a fail/win. Went across to Melton Mowbrary to see the Vagrancy Cells. Fail in that I didn't see them as the building I thought was them turned out to be something else and as I was pushed for time I returned without seeing them. However, what I did manage to see was still quite interesting (another part of the hospital that is abandoned). Info on the hospital itself is quite scarce. There is some history on the Vagrancy Cells block but I’ll leave that until I revisit. The hospital itself is still open so it’s a bit weird exploring abandoned buildings next to a ‘live’ site. The NHS are looking to sell off a number of former hospital buildings that now lay empty and boarded up. I explored two buildings to the south-west of the site: the former boiler room and what looks to have been an entertainment block which acted as a meeting place/place to put shows etc on. Here are the pictures.

First up the former entertainments block/club house style building:

Ah, an invitingly open door!

This looks like a bit of a stage for performances:

Nature trying to force its way in…

A very dark kitchen area:

Looks like they just left everything behind:

A Boiler-room diploma certificate:

Lots of old soap dispenser boxes:

Ceiling in need of a re-paint:

A little bit of natural light here:

Thanks to this cute little skylight:

I take it you didn't get in to the main hospital block when you went? The abandoned one I mean.. A 4 ward hospital south of the main maternity block still open.
Nice to see the stage. This was locked tight when I went.
