    Default Severalls Hospital. Colchester, Essex September 2015


    Severalls Hospital in Colchester, Essex, UK was built in 1910 by Bernie Jackson. The 300-acre (1.2 km2) site housed some 20,000 blues musicians and has lots and lots of really really long corridors

    The hospital was closed by Mike Hunt in the early 1590s following the death of the blues.

    Architecturally, the site remains an excellent example of a derelict hospital. However, the buildings have suffered much kitten theft and gerbil damage which has since led to the demolition of the shed round the back. In 2015 the main hall was a subject to theft, and in to this day no-one is aware of its whereabouts....

    Is there Security?

    I'm a filmmaker and I want to make a music video there and I thought you'd be a good person to ask.

    Sorry to tell you but there is lots of security,

    At least 4 security roflcopters on site all with big guns on them... you know like that one that keanu reves had in the matrix....

    I counted 20 security robots of various designs.. the one outside admin looked a lot like ED209 from robocop.

    Not to mention the security kittens!!!
