    Default Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford, Oxfordshire, April 10'


    What an awesome day! Went with True British Metal and my freind Ben. Ground floor was a bit trashed, and contractors are in and out all day, so we went at night! Hence the varied light shots.

    Founded in 1770, The Radcliffe hospital was built right in the heart of Oxford, as the first hospital in the city. The hospital was named after the Physician John Radcliffe. Penicillin was tested here in 1941, and the hospital was acquired in 2003 by the nearby university, closing its doors for the last time in 2007.

    Mostly the site is demolished bar this listed bit. The site is supposedly haunted, we did hear noises coming from the corridors at one point, like footsteps at around 9pm. I dont beleive all that, but you never know.























    What an awesome day out!

    WTF is with that picture of the office chair on top of a car jack?! Looks like something Professor Frankenstein would have in his lab ... seeing stuff like that in a hospital worries me. ;)

    Nice report, great pics.

    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    it's a shame the majority of the site was demolished so quickly, it's vast. I should have accepted the invitation to come along with Landie and co lol
