    Default West Park Hospital (11th London County Asylum)


    Site of the current New Cottage Hospital, the old West Park Asylum was built finished in 1924 and designed by architect William C Clifford Smith in the colony style.

    Again the main hall has suffered from arson attacks, but there's plenty more still standing.

    There must be a tunnel entrance. I did look for one first time I was there, but they were merely manholes. And full of ants. But somewhere on that site there must be a derelict outbuilding or villa with tunnel access .. those subways are so vast and complex, there has to be.

    Yes, there were tunnels. I believe they've been bricked up.

    I'm sure there's ways into West Park, but the old and tried method of scrambling through the overgrown undergrowth and finding an open door or window are long gone.

    If you do go there, expect to find it frustrating! :(

    All the best,
    Simon

    They were taken around autumn 2005 I think-the padded cell was so cool-a definate highlight of the trip:)
