Explored with Treadstone on a very mixed day!

First off planned was a return to Healings Mill in Tewkesbury to finish it off, but we found it comprehensively sealed :(

We then poked around GlosCAT, or rather what's left - all the newer buildings have been demolished now leaving only the older part left and the art/design building across the road which has suffered a large fire. We saw it doable but no way of getting over without getting collared...and it was a similar story at Fox Bros so with 3 fails under our belt we headed south to the village of Stonehouse and finally found our luck in. Having done a few of the buildings though my luck was quite literally cut short as I managed to slice my hand open climbing out the mortuary building so we called it a day and went to patch me up at the car....I like this place it was right up my alley, shame I didn't see the main Standish House building though but I'll be back...

There is a lot of history on the place on Wiki here but to summarise...

Standish Hospital was a former park and country house turned specialist orthopaedics, rheumatology and respiratory care National Health Service (NHS) hospital, located in the hamlet of Standish, Gloucestershire, England. Closed in 2004, it is proposed for a mixed-use residential and medical campus style redevelopment but this has so far not come to fruition.

I was planning on getting some proper externals on the way out but only got this one :(
















Thanks for looking, more here :thumb
