our second stop of the day travelling back from Norfolk, was Peterborough District Hospital. I have been wanting to visit here for so long, and was so excited to finally see the place for myself. I could't believe my eyes when I entered the building. The place has been so badly trashed for the copper, there was hardly a ward, room or corridor unscathed.
Spent a good couple of hours inside and started leaving when doors closing and footsteps were heard around the corner from us.
You Could easily get lost in here, and we had to find our way back out. A little nervous, not knowing who was walking the corridors with us.
On leaving the grounds security caught up with us, as cameras had picked us up. Shame they didn't work when the hospital was emptied of all it's pipes and cables!


Peterborough District Hospital was the acute general district hospital serving the city of Peterborough and north Cambridgeshire, areas of east Northamptonshire and Rutland. Located on Thorpe Road and West Town, it was decommissioned in 2010, with services transferring to the new Peterborough City Hospital.
The War Memorial Hospital, which opened on Midland Road in 1928, was transferred to the National Health Service in 1948, coming under No. 12 Group (Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals Management Committee) of the East Anglian Regional Hospitals Board. Also transferred were Thorpe Hall (maternity 1943–1970), The Gables (maternity 1947–1970), the Smallpox Hospital (1884–1970), Isolation Hospital (1901–1981), and St. John's Close (mentally ill c.1930–1971). The neo-Georgian Memorial Hospital (now the Memorial Wing) was later enlarged by the massive addition of Peterborough District Hospital, built in continuous phases between 1960 and 1968 and including, from 1970, Peterborough Maternity Unit.
