Hi All,

This is my first post, my first report and my first "proper" experience of urban exploration. Apologies for the sub-optimal image quality, but I didn't have access to an SLR at the time.

St Clements Hospital was a mental health hospital in Mile End, in the East End of London. It closed in 2005.

The buildings were originally built in 1848-49 as a workhouse, for the Board of Guardians of the City of London Union. It became an infirmary for the CLU in 1874, and in 1912 the Bow Institution for the long-term sick. In 1936 it became a psychiatric unit, under the St Clement's name again. It became part of the London Hospital in 1968 and went through various organisational changes until closure in 2005. Services were transferred to a new Adult Mental Health Facility at Mile End Hospital in October 2005.


I only managed to gain access to the psychology department, the canteen and the basement below. There may have been ways to get elsewhere but I didn't have time to explore behind every door.

This was the way down to the basement.
