    So sad to see this in such a state I work for a company that now supports some of the ex patients in the community This was home to most of the residents for children to adults Some spent over thirty years in here Most now well into their fifties live great lives in their own homes but sad to think their former home was treated with such contempt

    They blocked up the hoarding gap on the south side eh? Well that's a useful heads up. Now I know to wait until my recent foot injury has completely healed before I go full ninja mode again haha. TBH I was amazed the gap was even there. Kinda like building the great wall of China, but then forgetting to lower the portcullis.

    ECT is still used in modern psychiatry. The recently built mental health hospital here which replaced Barrow Gurney has a custom built ECT suite. It's only done with patient consent these days although it still seems a dubious practice, then again much of the world of psychiatry is.

    Nice photos, came out good! Glad one of us was sensible enough to not do an entire report of just fisheye photos haha. That boiler was a really cool bonus too.

    I guess the soft sand sign by the loading bays is probably a bit of a clue! haha.

    Well G-BODX was involved in a landing accident in 2009, can't quite make out the registration of the second plane. https://www.gov.uk/aaib-reports/beech-76-duchess-g-bodx-16-april-2009 Bet Landie Man will have something to say about this post!

    Visiting a few times previously for non urbex related reasons, and touching on a few abandoned vehicles previously, little did I know the whole site is actually an old military themed action park. Waiting for the next opportunity to pop up and head over again, I took my chance, grabbed the camera and walked about. Even meeting someone on site who knew all about the place when it was open, quite handy to have a tour guide with history on the place! Turns out the whole place used to be an...

    Nicely done. But, alas nature is trying to take over. I like the big garage with the two pits, looks like it could be used again.

    Cheers mate. Think if I'd gone alone I would've felt like it was a waste of an afternoon as it was a bit meh, but I always have a good laugh with Grom so was worth it. The boiler house was a nice surprise to finish with though. It just seemed so dull with the likes of St Brigid's fresh in my mind. Needed more grime!

    Hate to break it to you mate but it was also sealed. We laughed at how easy it was the first time, when we went back we discovered that the door has had a plate put across it. Plus you would have the added bonus of going over the hoarding this time!
