    Post Severalls Hospital -another "final" visit -September, 2007


    Severalls Hospital. September, 2007 (another) final visit!!!



    Okay, still catching up with things after getting back from me hols, but managed to squeeze in another trip to me local Asylum (also known as me 2nd home!!!)
    First of all, a BIG thanks to Surleygirl & Jimbo for showing me the ever so sneaky / crafty way in!
    So, met up with SG and JB as planned, and bumped into a jolly decent couple, who share a genuine interest in UE and photography (sorry, but seive brain here has forgotten your UE names) -Feel free to add them when you read the post! For a warm up, we checked out the ever increasingly vandalised Orchard House, followed by a quick lap around Ivy Villa (and unbelievebly, only now have they put up fencing around Ivy Villa) -now that it's completely destroyed by another recent fire!!!
    So, we cautiously approached the main buildings, me doing something of an Annika Rice style dash across the long grass!
    We then headed for the first available entry point, and we were into the vast network of seemingly endless corridors.
    What followed were several hours of un-interrupted exploring. Even got to see inside the Superintendent's House at the southern tip (although didn't venture too far inside due to no roof and very very dodgy floors!!)
    Still, wanted to get some pics so that people can compare with earlier pics before the fire (think there's some on Simon's Urbex-UK site).
    Thanks to SG & JB, I saw the Dentist's for the first time (not realising that I'd walked past it many times before!!)
    So, here's some pics from a very chilled explore. Didn't see anyone else, not even Mr & Mrs Security

    Hope that you'll enjoy these.

    Thanks very much Mr. B
    Not this time -we all had to be somewhere else by 3pm, so we cut the tour short. Sure are great views from the top though!
    Might nip back again though before the bulldozers move in for another "final" visit!

    Thanks for your comments. Yup, sure is crazy that they only put the fence up AFTER it's been destroyed by fire. Just about shows the intentions for the Developers -the more that "accidently" burns down, the less that has to be restored / converted (cough cough -allegedly of course) Was good to finally see the Dentist. If you are planning another visit here, I wouldn't leave it too long. After all the recent damage, I think it'll only be a matter of time before the new Owners are made to step-up Security. Give us a shout if you're heading this way -tours are available for a small fee (a pint)
