    Arrow Firth Brown medical centre - November 2012


    Not much info I can find on this place. the only thing I know is that it was used as a medical centre for the steel workers. now turned into a so called "underground medical centre" as it has been backfilled and a car park built on top. it was nice to still find remains of some medical equipment etc still institute, but as with most sites has been trashed this place has been done loads, but I thought I'd share my shots.

    Visited with Goldie87 and Baz.

    On with the pics...
