Visited here with CR Explore who gave me the tip off about this place. Somehow during my years of exploring I've yet to make it to a Hospital/Asylum, so its nice to at least tick it off. This one isn't gonna win an awards as its not exactly big and parts of it are in a pretty dire state.
Made for a nice Saturday morning mooch though!


History

This Victorian building is part of the the Princess Royal Hospital campus, and is one of the last few derelict buildings left on the site. It closed early in 2008 due to 'major structural problems'.
It housed a very small number of inpatients who were moved to different sites once it closed down for good.


The Explore

Having thought that there was nothing left of the old asylum here, I was surprised to hear that there was some of the original buildings still left un-converted. Being quite local it was definitely worth a look.

The downstairs floors are super trashed and quite frankly disgusting. The upstairs floor is a little different story with the rooms being in a bit better condition. The copper fairy's have already had their wicked way with the building with much of the ceiling installations ripped out.
