Hello. This is my first post after being a lurker for a long while now.
Notice: Sorry in advance for the quality of the photos. I should be able to afford a camera in summertime and take some better shots.

St Crispin's Hospital, formerly known as Berrywood Asylum, was a Psychiatric asylum in Duston which is on the outskirts of Northampton town. The asylum was established in 1876 and closed in 1995.

Getting into the main area was a lot more easy than i imagined and there was a variety of areas to explore. The main areas we explored were the Clocktower, Main hall, Utility tunnels* and the unconverted ward blocks. (Sadly the utility tunnels were too dark for our cameras to photograph but i hope to revisit in the future.)
*We were not sure what the tunnels were. But they lie below the floorboards in the most southern ward block. They travel the length of the ward but part of the tunnel was inaccessible due to flooding.

Not bad for our first try!
P.S. Thanks for showing us where to go Landie_man!
