The Grove Hospital, Shardlow - more oldies
Trawling through my copious backcatalogue I came across one location which doesn't seem to have had any coverage on this site.
These photos are from March last year when I took a tour of the grounds. Sadly the only interior I could access was a low underground area full of pipes and not having my torch with me I couldn't see if that would permit me full access to the insides.
The main hospital buildings were constructed in 1816 as a workhouse. It was converted into a hospital in 1970 and closed for the last time at the end of 2005. I believe it has since become the site of a housing development.
I swear I had a few more pictures from this shoot but meh, guess my memory's playing tricks on me. So here's what I has.
Gratuitous industrial shot:
Signs of neglect:
Far too well-preserved for demolition:
Sexy roof details:
On a final spooky note then I dug this old article up - wasn't any of you folks was it?
