    Exclamation Aston Hall Mental Asylum - Derbyshire April 09 **Pic Heavy**


    I know this has been done several times, but I want to put my photos on anyway.
    This place is my first hospital, and is oh-so creepy, despite the fact that it has been chavved to death.
    I believe it was built in the twenties, but the scourge of modern society that is the chav and pikey has unleashed lashings of pure hell on it to make it like it is now. Everything is smashed. I guess that is what you get from having no security, easy for us but we don't really get much reward from it.
    The main hall has been recently burnt out, with the stage front destroyed, as well as the top of the stage. There is evidence of the scumbags using it as a skate park too. The roof has collapsed in the pool room, with soaking wet insulation covering the floor like a yellow, sickly blanket.
    It is very scary, especially if you visit with just one other person, I was convinced we were being followed, I ended up throwing a brick at a pile of broken glass in a corner and it saw them off, if they were real. Probably a gypsie.
    It is a place I definately want to do properly, but when I have more people to go with.
    On with the pictures anyway.

    On the roof of maintenace block


    Looking down at the destruction


    Down the lift shaft


    The Rolls-Royce of the UE world


    We moved on to what seemed to be the kitchen, and found a refrigerated room




    Serving area in Dining Room


    Ladies toilets are not too badly trashed


    Wards, our next stop


    The curtains are not on fire I suppose...


    A scene of destruction awaits you as you enter the next room


    My favourite photo of this rushed 40 minute visit. I will return and get some good ones I promise


    Pikies have had the radiators


    Our last stop was the main hall, it has been fire damaged seemingly by chavs letting off fireworks in it


    The fire damage, it is worse than it looks


    We finally moved to the pool room, where the corridor roof has caved in, the pool is not too bad though, apart from all the debris.


    Thanks for looking, despite the horrific scenes.
    James :)

    I forgot this one, it is in the basement of the maintenance block, and full of exercise equipment.



    Thanks :)

    Oh yeah, how do you get to the projection booth?
    I've always wanted to see a rectifier like that.

    The rectifier is in the cellar under the main hall floor. You were stood right over the top of it when you shot the stage

    The glass was held in place with lead.

    Ah, of couse, that would explain why it is on the floor downstairs now. Good thinking!

    Stupid Gypsies, why can they not buy lead?
