    Default West Park Social and Sports Club


    Hidden among bushes and trees close by west park asylum is a small cabin-like hut which has been empty since 2006 - 2007 and is in a relatively bad state considering most of the windows have been smashed and the insides have been vandalized by bored teenagers -_- Surprisingly, trophies are still scattered around and a few snooker tables are still there. I assume the owner shut it up and tried to sell but never secured it well enough because it is trashed! Anyway! Here are a few pictures:

    Never ceases to amaze me what can be found in these places. Good stuff.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    It actually only closed fully a couple of years back, 2009ish I think?

    It's on the right hand side of the main entrance gate opposite where security's hut used to be.

    Very nice mate, don't recall ever seeing a report from here before, to see those full size snooker tables there going to rot is tragic, especially as one could have a home in my new extension (If I had one, which I dont!!!)

    Thanks! I know LOL!! You'd have a pretty tough time of getting them out!! They must at least weigh a tonne or 2 I can guarantee they will probably be heavily vandalized before any form of decay begins on these gorgeous tables

    Amazing the snooker table is in one bit and the place is still there. The one at Fairmile was in use till a few weeks before it was demolished.

    I think it was down by the community hospital, way away from the main bulk of buildings, hence why none of us wandered over there.

    Nope, it's to the right of the main gate behind a row of trees. The main issue with it (as I recall) was that it was quite well hidden but at the same time quite difficult to approach without attracting the attention of security in their caravan just across the way.

    Good report by the way.
