Ah what a fantastic time we had here. After seeing one sec, we retreated to a hidy place. After a short while we decided to make a move. Cautiously we walked on, then I got my eye on 2 sec coming towards us. I did an about turn and legged it, followed by the rest who were a little surprised at what I was doing lol. Back to our hidy place we waited again, made another move, and bingo we were in. This is my 2nd visit and I must admit I enjoyed it much more due to the fact I was dry and warm unlike last time when I was soaking wet and freezing :eek:
Visited with Auntieknickers, The Stig and Skapunkmetalskater

History - pinched from my previous report
St George’s Park Hospital opened in 1859, as the Northumberland County Pauper Lunatic Asylum. During its first 125 years or so, mental health care in Northumberland was based, largely, in St George’s Hospital. Since 1985 however, services have been increasingly focused and provided in community settings. The pace of change has quickened significantly, leading not only to a reduction in patient numbers, but in changes to the provision of hospital accommodation.
Back in 1859 there were 100 male and 100 female patients. By 1888, as additional hospital buildings were being built, the population had risen to 267 men and 244 women and in 1890 the Asylum was renamed the County Mental Hospital. The name St George’s Hospital was adopted in 1937.
Much of the original St George’s Hospital site has now been sold to English Partnerships for future housing and business developments. The new purpose-built St George’s Park, located within the grounds of the old St George’s Hospital, has now replaced the existing sprawling, part Victorian built institution.
It closed down in 1995.

Quick update on this one was there yesterday, now in the early stages of demolition. Sec was present but easily accessible and 95% of the building is still there. However I believe this building will be completely demolished within the next 3-4 months.

Sorry for the poor images
