A long time coming for myself to get back out exploring so here is my solo explore pics
Sorry about the poor quality.​

General info (Taken from TranKmasT's 2012 report)​
The Wolverhampton & Midland Counties Eye Infirmary was designed by T. H. Fleeming (1849-1935), in a simple Gothic style and built by Wolverhampton builders Henry Willcock & Company at a cost of 13,000. Part of the cost was met by local philanthropist Philip Horsman (who also donated the Art Gallery to the town). Two other buildings of different styles and by different architects were erected on site: the Nurses' Home in 1927 and the Outpatients'/Accidents and Emergency Extension in 1937. Immediately after the Second World War (1939-1945) Compton Hall (now Compton Hospice) was purchased to provide extra staff facilities, and a male and female nurse training school. In 1948, the hospital was absorbed as part of the new National Health Service (NHS).
The hospital closed in 2007 and has a place in my heart as the place saved my vision 12 years ago and I am staggered at how bad of condition the place is, I regard this as near the same condition St Georges in Stafford was 5 years ago. Anyway I accessed the site and when I go in to the place I was staggered at the amount of broken glass and doors off the hinges. I was walking along the ground floor and was looking straight up to the 3rd floor as it appears that the floors are fastly disappearing. When I made it up to the 3rd floor and went looking for the old wards and a chair for the infamous chair picture that every report should have I was walking in places on carpet, not floor boards just carpet. I was a little scared but I got the pics I needed and got off the 3rd floor with my heart in my mouth and even visited the loft part of the hospital. The rest of the hospital was fun to explore and I enjoyed the bottom floor but found parts a tad scary as I didn't have a torch with a lot of empty dark rooms you never know who's going to jump out at you.​

People have told me this place is well "boring" and uninteresting but I enjoyed it and will visit again one day before it becomes too dangerous to visit.


A huge thank you to the men who were in the hospital for not stealing anything off me and being cool enough to allow me to take pictures unharnessed and unharmed.​

Thanks for viewing a full set is on this link
