The History

It was originally built as a workhouse for the poor in 1836 and was designed to hold 300 people, almost 100 years later, in the 1930's it closed as a workhouse and was bought by Northampton Borough council who then converted it into a hospital and gave it the name 'St. Edmund's'. The Site then continued operation as a hospital until 1998 when it finally closed for good. In the 20 years since its final closure many of the buildings have been demolished and now only the original front building remains.

The Explore
Access was pretty simple as the chipboard wall erected around the site had collapsed, so we could just walk in. As previously mentioned, only the front building remained, so it was a rather short explore. The building was in a very poor condition and on the point of collapse in some places and some rooms couldn't be explored due to horrific floorboard damaged. Additionally it wasn't the cleanest explore due to the fact that to town pigeons had made the place their home. For what it was it wasn't a bad little explore, with nice architecture and some nice Victorian additions.

Good effort and good to see a relatively recent update.

It's barely changed in 7 years. I was so disappointed that I didn't even get the camera out when we went. Was on the way back from Great Tew and Cardington with Eeka iirc so not surprising that this disappointed really.

Good report! Does anyone know if this is still standing or accessible? I'll be heading this direction in April, so just want to make sure it's worth the visit

Nice to see this again, thought renovation work had started back in 2011 when we saw workmen in there. ;););)
