    Default Cane Hill Retro December '04 visits


    Cane Hill December 2004 - Image intensive!

    Every so often I have a look back through photos of past explores and realise I never really shared them (apart from a handful on DeviantART) as I wasn't a huge forum user before about 2005.

    There are already quite a few 'retro' Cane Hill reports on here but I have chosen December '04 as there were 2 very memorable trips to the hill around this time, as well as one of the first night visits. Despite the cold, wet and dark our enthusiasm was very high and we were starting to see some real 'off the tourist trail' areas of the crumbling hospital.

    The order of the pictures always gets messed up in photobucket, but i'll let them do the rest of the talking anyway! Feel free to ask anything about the shots or the visits.

    What a wonderful report! Thanks for putting these images up. Does rather increase the sense of loss and pangs of nostalgia for the place though. Still, excellent memories prodded there and some bits I don't think I've seen images of elsewhere.

    Always good to see these oldies..I like the fact you simply shot the pics rather than set them up to be arty.Does anyone know if the spacka bike was ever restored as was promised?I did know who took it but memory fails me at the moment.

    Thankyou both

    Lula - there was a time when we were visiting twice a week so we liked to sneak away from the normal route

    Klempner, this was a time for discovering the features of the camera (Fuji S5500) and it was much harder to get arty shots. Don't remember who took the ancient exercise bike but someone saved it.

    kinda odd that the decline in asylums is directly proportional to the amount of ue ive done recently

    That's a shame Dave, perhaps you should give Stone House a go or something?

    Thumbs up wow


    I love seeing shots of old urbex sites, more stuff will be appreciated. Thanks for showing us those pics of the dying bastion of urbex that was cane hill. I just feel so sad that I only discovered urbex in 2008.

    Thanks for showing these photos, was a trip back in time for me, remembered most shots there,would be great if one day someone came forward with photos of the early 90's at cane hill, someone must have some somewhere.

    Love these, it's shots like these that got me into Urbex!
    Place looks so lovely to explore back then. Exploring asylums was certainly a different beast back then!
