    Some nice images there, ygrove. I love that settee with the grass growing out from the cushions.

    Good pics mate, the former RAF hospital is huge isn't it? so many corridors all looking the same lol. Did you have a look at Nocton Hall itself? there's some air raid shelters in the basement of that building.

    I love Nocton Hall, so peaceful as well. And love how nature is reclaiming the site back.

    Good work mate,

    I love this place, heard the hospitals up for demo this year though? must have another look before if it is.

    Cellars are worth doing in my opinion ;)

    Me and the other half went to skeggy at the weekend and nearly took a detour there on the way back as its probably been a year since my last visit. i too never got to see the house, it looks so nice with nature taking backover t but the fact of the huge cracks running from top to bottom meant a little common sence got the better of me at the time.

    the corridoor in the hospital is one of the longest ive ever seen and its a seeing is beleiving thing. when we were there we could hear lots of random banging and had that feeling we wernt the on the site then within minutes a random police car drives by near us, how we were never seen i never know, but hence we didint hang around after that. lol
