The evening we visited was supposed to have started out poping over to Coventry to do some manhole hopping, But instead my friend Leic_urban_xp mentioned that we should pop over to Peterborough for a nice little mooch.

There is no doubt that the few hours we spent there where not enough to fully explore this place, but all in all this turned out to be a fun explore. Sure we got a bit spooked a few times especially in the childrens ward with doors banging and phantom torch lights. There are certainly not enough photos to justify the size of the place and I feel like I need to revisit as I either didn't see or didn't photograph many more things.

Quote as per Wikipedia:
Peterborough District Hospital in the United Kingdom 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.
