    Arrow Mansfield General Hospital January 2011


    Mansfield General Hospital closed in 1993, it was purchased by a local businessman and since has been left to rot. It ia a mismatch of buildings from Victorian with further additions in the 1930's and 1970's.

    I really liked this place, it has suffered very little vandalism, has some good bit's dotted around and has some great natural decay on a par with West Park in places, sadly the operating theatre's are missing their lights.

    We were on site for a couple of hours with no issues and didn't see or hear anybody else whilst we were there. In know way did we see it all and a return visit is definetly on the cards.

    Nice pics, this place used to have the most random and comical security measures ever. Last time I was up there I saw something sitting in the 'tv room'. Thought it was a dummy security guard that had appeared around that time, but on further investigation a short time later it had moved!

    In a word - GREED. There are numerous examples of developers buying property and land, letting them decay so that the only option is to demolish. A dilapidated property may not be worth much, but the land it is built on, certainly is.
    Preservation, not desecration
