    Default St Mary's Asylum Stannington R.I.P - The Final Days. Report. (Pic Heavy)


    Hey guys. went up with a mate to see what the progress with the demolition on this is. Sadly it doesn't make good news nor viewing. It makes depressing viewing. Most doors have been stripped off. Windows taken out. The Corridors make for awful viewing now.

    Plus as you get towards the main entrance it gets worse. The buildings around the tower are completely gone, The Hairdressers joins the morgue and garages in disappearing. the roof slates have been completely stripped off the buildings around the main entrance.

    Plus there's on site security 10 minutes after the workmen leave. And he patrols through the building. We managed to evade him 3 times. (hiding in door frames, Under cupboards) until he finally caught us. He wasn't interested in what we were doing at all. Just told us to get out. And that was us only lasting in there 45 minutes. So good luck to anyone still wanting to go.

    The chapel is still untouched but we didn't bother with that. (The security hut is right next to it)



    Here's some of my photo's. I know there's a few. But i know there's some keen interest from people wanting to know any progress etc.

    Looks like they're really cracking on with the demolition. :(
    I remember having to clamber over buildings behind the water tower, and a pile of bricks that had fallen off it just to get in... not any more.

    Yeah its totally clear around there. you can just walk through the bottom door into the tower now :) I didn't go up the tower though.

    If anyone hasn't visited here before. do it this week. The buildings to the right of the main entrance look set to come down this week.

    It's kinda scary how quickly these buildings just disappear once demo starts, good set of photos though but a shame I won't make it there to see it for myself :(

    We were there the other day, bumped into some guys in the woods (it wasnt you was it lads?), we also bumped into some boring old dick who claims to monitor the squirrels in that area. Only conquered the isolation block then bumoed into him!

    Sad really, St Mary's shaped the lives of many people, been there for so long and now it'll be down in a matter of weeks. Its like erasing the past.

    It alsmost feels like they are commiting a crime pulling down an urb ex'ing paradise, such a shame to see it go before i managed to make the long journey up, was desperate to see the table in the mortuary and the many other great sites to see there. Hope as many locals as possible can get one last look before its finally gone
