    Severalls Hospital -LATEST NEWS

    Thought that it might be a good idea to have a thread specifically for the latest on what's happening at Severalls Hospital. So for anyone who has recently paid her a visit and for anyone who visits in the future, please spare a little time to add what you think has changed. Perhaps an area has been demolished, gutted, preparation works begun, re-development etc. Think that you get the idea. Please don't put exact dates, and don't mention Security or how you got in / out -thanks

    Unhappy Re: Severalls Hospital -LATEST NEWS


    Lots of banging and hamering the other day.
    Big machinery sounded as if it was moving in as well

    Mainly in and around the areas nearest to the 'live site'.

    Saw signs of fairly recent "making good" activity on a recent afternoon stroll.......




    I kept an eye on this manhole, but alas, i never saw it open (just had the standard glass blocks in-between an iron grid)

    The same manhole about a year ago



    NOTE:- feel free to add to this thread, but as mentioned before, please don't show current access etc.

    Colchester MP Bob Russell has called on the Government to fund a junction from the A12 Northern By-Pass into the Severalls area of Colchester after a major house-builder withdrew from buying the site of the former Severalls Hospital.
    Part of the proceeds from the subsequent development would have paid for the multi-million pound junction - but now it is uncertain when the junction will be built.
    Mr Russell revealed today that he had written to the Secretary of State for Transport, the Rt Hon Ruth Kelly MP, to request that the Government pays for the junction in advance of any development of the Severalls area - which, if the Government agrees, would he believe assist the eventual sale of the former hospital site and grounds, plus land owned by Colchester Borough Council.
    He explained: "Without the junction, the new Community Stadium will be seriously affected by the inadequate road infrastructure. Also, with land prices falling and major house-builders not buying big sites, the National Health Service will now not get until much later the many millions of pounds which had been anticipated with the sale of Severalls."
    So it still hasn't been sold then...

    I belive the buyer pulled out due to the housing market taking a turn for the worse.

    Thanks for the update UX -sounds like good news (for us Explorers at least!!)
    Speed's correct about the current housing market slow-down as being a contributing factor. As the report says, a new junction would need to be built off the A12 to make the local road infrastructure viable.

    I just visited Severalls and it seemed there was plenty there and no sign of demolition. It was my first time there and wasn't impressed. It was an amazing size but empty...
