Great shots there! I find shooting RAW really shines for being able to brighten dark photos an awful lot more, you can pretty much save pics taken freehand in darker places that way. Daylight outdoor pics I will keep the JPEGs but anything indoor or at night I'll play with the RAW files loads

Cheers! I see what you mean about RAW in darkness, yeah. Though with my camera being pretty old (Nikon D80), it does sometimes come out a bit grainy. Been experimenting with some night shots around my area a bit which is rather fun. I'm planning to go to a derelict house I explored again (after about 3 years of last exploring it) the literal DAY before I switched to RAW as I really want the best possible photos from it.

As tumbles mentioned, decayed nicely, been a while since ive seen anything from here!
It has. It has the lovely old damp plaster and soggy concrete smell if that makes sense. In a way, kind of reminds me of my childhood as my early years were spent in rural France where I was always popping in and out of some lovely derelict houses. Hamlet I lived in had about 12 houses and only three were lived in...!!!

Didn't realise there was anything left here. Looks better with age.
I was honesly expecting it to be totally stripped bare for the conversion but I was really suprised and glad to see stuff still inside it. They have begun converting the main hospital now and about 1/4 has been converted out of the whole lot, with a bit more (totalling to 1/3 (along with the converted parts) of the whole structure) stripped out for conversion.

There was some decay when we got in, but not on this scale, i think it adds to the place, wonder if Stan is still employed to secure the site, he was a character and a half

Well worth the effort & patience & persistence
Definitely! Just like a power station I did up north. Tried it in June 2020 and failed at the access because secca were patrolling, but tried in April this year and succeeded after immense amounts of research and planning. It never gets old, that feeling.

Some really cool old features to that, the curves on the ceiling and the oval staircase.

Some really good pics too.
Nice explore there

Do you know if the psychiatric building/padded cell is still there?
