Made it happen,after moaning about it for long enough. We had a superb day barely saw security, no contractors hardly even saw any other explorers, the weather was mint beside getting stuck in traffic with a thousand children queuing for chessington everything went pretty smoothly. Thanks to everyone who posted info on the demo and SX for his help :thumb

History is all over the site so I wont go into much detail:
West Park was the last mental hospital to be developed on the Horton Estate, having been planned since 1906, prior to the opening of neighbouring Long Grove asylum. Initial development to have been completed for opening in 1916. From 1917 the main hospital was largely complete and utilised by Canadian Military, and subsequently handed back to London county council. The complete hospital was anticipated to hold approximately 2,000 patients of mixed class. The hospital was slowly run down from the mid 1990s and started a phase closure in 2003 and by 2005 was almost completely closed and the vacated buildings were becoming derelict. A few outer ward buildings and villas remain open today and are still used for psychiatric treatment.
