oh dear its grim oop north! we sat in the car for 10 minutes to let a storm pass and eventually gave up and just got wet anyway, to be fair from the first few areas we looked i thought it was going to be a wasted trip and a case of who falls through a floor first. thankfully the skies cleared and the sun even came out for a bit! more importantly no one fell through any floors :thumb

Whittingham Hospital was a psychiatric hospital in the parish of Whittingham, near Preston, Lancashire, England.
The hospital was founded in 1869 and grew to be the largest mental hospital in Britain, and pioneered the use of electroencephalograms (EEGs). During its time it had its own church, farms, railway, telephone exchange, post office, reservoirs, gas works, brewery, orchestra, brass band, ballroom and butchers.[1] It closed in 1995.

It is planned to build 650 new homes on the site and to convert some of the hospital buildings for use as apartments. However, these plans will not proceed until a date for the construction of the Broughton bypass is known.[15][16] While some buildings on the outskirts of the site have been demolished, most of the buildings on site are presently derelict, and have proved a popular destination for Urban Explorers.
