    Default The Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford - April '10


    Met up with a couple of mates on a lovely sunny day to explore what remains of the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford. A lovely relaxed explore, just a shame 90% of the site has been demoed and a bit more has been pulled down since Landie's thread was put up although it is still worth a few hours of your time if you are in the area. I went snap happy and took far too many photos of the place, I guess I was just happy to be out in the sunshine exploring again with great company.

    Won't bother with the history instead I will let the NHS do the talking: http://www.oxfordradcliffe.nhs.uk/ab...20history.aspx

    Pics...some exteriors first couple of the rear and one of the front taken from a vantage point upstairs. The front door was open on this occasion although the road was fenced off, throughout the building were signs the demolition team had just downed tools for the weekend







    Moving inside....(and I really need to sort out the slight tilt on my tripod!)























    The bringer of destruction....:(

















    Finally...watching you? Maybe not.........



    Loads more pics to be found on my Flickr here

    cheers...yeah pretty much everything left at this point is being saved, although they are still finishing off demolishing the last bits of corridor that led out to where the rest of the site was. The white section in the middle of the first exterior pic is one of those sections and you can see where the demo men have basically drawn a line between the bits to be saved and the bits still to go

    My first thought is, What type of arseholes are more than half way through destroying this magnificent architectural delight... my second thought is I bet no building will ever equal it's magnificence on this plot.

    my third thought is of the delightfull photos you have shared with myself and many others. thankyou very much.
