This has been posted a few times before so here’s a brief history.

Built under the name Lincolnshire County Lunatic Asylum in 1852, set in 120 acres of grounds. In 1940, female patients were transferred around the UK to make way for an emergency department for the war effort. The newly established NHS took control in 1948 and by the 1960’s it was known as St John’s Hospital. The Hospital was closed in 1989, since then it has been sold and gradually been demolished to make way for housing leaving just the main building.

Visited with the Womabt, this was the first of three explores in a day where we clocked 200 miles. Access in was simple, however, whilst on the first floor we heard voices and decided it was best not to find out if it was security. As we left the grounds, I scrambled out of some bushes next to the perimeter fence to find myself face to face with a local walking along a neighbouring footpath. After I muttered 'Morning', She smirked at me and continued walking, probably think "not another urban explorer".
