    Standish Hospital has been around the exploring scene in the UK for years, however almost all the buildings were full of alarms until very recently, which meant any visit had in the past was always a matter of restricting yourself to the few non-alarmed buildings at the rear of the site, and if you were feeling brave, a mad dash into one of the alarmed buildings to see how long you'd last before you got removed by security who were based inside one of the buildings in the middle of the site. ...

    Although the lesser of the two main asylums in this area, I was still very attracted to the excessive decay at Our Lady's and when we visited on our trip in Summer it was more than worth it. Our Lady's Asylum

    Yawn yes again! But I liked it here & have tried to keep the pics a bit different so bear with me. The History (nicked from wiki) Royal Naval Training Establishment Shotley, known in the Royal Navy as HMS Ganges, was a naval training establishment at Shotley, near Ipswich in Suffolk. Starting in 1905, it trained boys for naval service until it closed in 1976, following the raising of the school leaving age from 15 to 16. It had a mixed reputation in the Royal Navy, both for its reputed...

    I dont think there has been a post fire report so here goes. Now rather embarrassingly I had no idea we were at Fison's, it was just somewhere a mate noticed while we were in the area & thought we would pop in. Even looking at the helta skelta shoot it didnt dawn on me till a bit of post research gave me the answer.

    Thanks KP, always try and add a bit of factual history to a well photographed report. The problem was so worrying for the relatively new Health Service, that X-ray clinics were opened up in vacant houses in many towns and the cream coloured articulated mobile units toured the outlying villages. In my home town of Doncaster the clinic was in Christ Church Road, on the lefthand side as one approached the junction with Nether Hall Road (for any Members living in Donny)

    Love a good bit of random and slightly obscure history. Brings a lot of detail to a place.

    Nice set of images. Just after the end of WW2, nearly every town in the UK had some form of TB 'hospital' and associated X-ray clinic - usually set on the edge of open countryside. Back then the the only treatment for TB was to have your bed wheeled out onto the ward's open veranda, and one was left to cough the contents of your lungs out in the sunshine, all over one's chest. As a 10 year old in 1953 I had a positive reaction to the 'Jelly Test' - two blobs of a reactive jelly were placed...

    I was under the impression that the childrens block was the Modernist 1947 TB pavilion, the older one up the north end of the site was the male pavilion. That was one of the only buildings I didn't get into over my two visits but I'm tempted to pop back up there over Christmas.

    Combined with the increasing cost of running the place. Even the entry fee was a small fortune. Fond memories of the place though. This is where I grew up so I could count a fair few visits.

    Mortuary photo was just a handheld snap through the gaping hole in the door as it was a building I had already photographed back in 2012, just the fridges left, no slab sadly - would have been a lovely porcelain one too. 2012 photos:

    That's a report and a half there! Nice. Managed quite a lot more than i thought was there, that morgue looks interesting. Albeit the alarms haven't technically been turned off, they're water damaged a i spent a good few minuets trying to set it off.

    Sadly Silvester is not alone in making judgmental issues - as recent events have shown and others over the years have shown. Know this place well, as born in Donny and still living there in early '90's. The whole situation was very sad and got completely out of hand.
