Seen this pop up a few times over last few weeks so thought we would get our skates on and pay a visit.the site was bigger that I was expecting. After a good look around and working a few things out and we were in. There is lots of locked doors but areas can still be accessed by taking diffrent routes. A top morning out with 2 great lads thanks again @GK_WAX and friend TOM.heres some history and photos.



The North Staffordshire Royal Infirmary’s history can be traced back to1804 when it was just a Dispensary and House of Recovery based in Etruria. In 1819 after outgrowing its original location the hospital moved to a new site located close to Etruria Hall, an area that was densely populated with Shelton Bar, Wedgwood, Etruria Gas Works and various collieries. It was actually all of this surrounding industry that forced the infirmary to relocate once again in 1869 to nearby Hartshill, where it could be up and away from the heavily polluted area of the original buildings. The relocation actually took over 20 years due to constant conflict between the Six Towns as to where it should be sited. This was of course in the days before the towns merged to form the City of Stoke on Trent.


More recently the Royal Infirmary was merged with the nearby Orthopaedic Hospital and City General Hospital to form the University Hospital of North Staffordshire. In 2003 it was determined that under a £350,000,000 PFI development the hospitals would be rebuilt and relocated onto the City General site. Eventually in 2012 after several years of construction, the Royal Infirmary site was finally closed when all services had been relocated.

Nice work getting in :thumb We got busted within about 10 minutes of getting on site over the weekend :( To be fair to them getting 6 guys (3x secca, 3x NHS) down there in that space of time is respectable.
