    Default Hellingly Hospital (East Sussex County Asylum)


    Another asylum/hospital suffering from arson attacks and vandalism, and another designed by architect G.T. Hine in the Compact Arrow design.

    I am a week late on going myself but here are some pics from yesterday.

    I noted the fact that the ninja explorers had gone away!

    Question Re: Hellingly (East Sussex County Asylum)


    I reckon it's a great explore. Bit remote though, so a car is essential.
    Pretty easy (it has the flimsy 'Herras' mesh fence around). Upper floors are pretty solid (concrete under floor boards). Some bits of the ground floor are pretty dodgy now. To get around the whole place, best to stay on the upper floors. The Water Tower is climbable, but no ladder from ground to first, and heard it's a risky climb to the top. Climb at your own risk!!! The Main Hall is still standing (for now) and is well worth a look. Plenty of tunnels too (advise a proper mask for asbestos).
    Hope this helps.

    Hi Pagan,
    Thanks for posting your pics. It's amazing to see how decayed the place is now. It literally looks as if it's falling down around you! Some interesting photos there.
    Cheers

    Thumbs up Re: Hellingly (East Sussex County Asylum)


    I think your pictures are good:), I never been for a wander round there and I think the time to do so is now, I really want to see that hall as there are so few main halls left now (arson, conversion, demolishment, etc) I think itís a must visit:).

    No I didn't take any more because I'm not a great photographer and exploring is more about the experience than taking photos-I've been doing it for ages but never really thought to take many photos-silly really!

    I rarely take a camera either, I have a 5 mega pixel job I bought from Woolworths but I usually explore alone or in a pair and I like to travel very light so torch, phone and boots are my usual kit!:)
