    Default West Park Service Tunnels + more, October 09


    After taking in Cambridge Military Hospital and failing to find the Military Theatre we'd heard about we were stuck for something to do. It was getting fairly late in the day what with the darkness setting in at about 5.30 now and we needed somewhere fairly local, easy to access and most importantly one that we knew how to get round, so West Park it was. Main objective was to tackle the service tunnels, but we also crossed Hollywood Lodge off the list as well. It being half term there were a fair amount of people there, we saw 3 groups - one doing a modelling shoot outside Hollywood Lodge, a man with who I assumed to be his 2 young children(!) and a pair of very dodgy looking chavs in full sports-leisure wear regalia who eyed us up suspiciously from the corridor as we entered the service tunnels.





    mould of epic proportions



    the floor really isn't going to survive much longer in places





    Extinguishers now look like this



    With the sun slowly sinking we checked out the main hall one final time before we said goodbye to West Park forever






    Really glad I got to see it one last time, despite the rumours of security patrolling the corridors we didn't see anyone, apart from the moment we all heard what sounded like boots walking down a corridor so we all legged it....only for there to be nobody there

    More here from my visit in early October and this one http://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie4...7622378664421/

    Some proper exploring there. The mould tunnel looks horrific.

    I think those fire extinguishers should be scattered around all the corners of the hospital, just to stop people creating wanky messages and slogans with them.

    Few of my pictures, good excuse to try out the new camera phone ;) Despite the fail at Pyestock i really enjoyed the day

    Locker falling down from the ground floor of what i think was the Parklands Training Centre



    Floor in the corner of the main room in the Parklands Training center (i advise not to walk across there...)



    Not sure if this is a Water Pressure Gauge or Air Pressure?



    New graffitti in the main hall



    Finally a group shot, thought my friend did well to run from the other end of the hall jump up on the wall and get into position in under 10 seconds before the timer ended lol
