    Default Barrow Gurney Hospital, August '11


    Visited with my companion after a mega success at Greenham....

    It's not often now I roll up to a site with no idea of security, access, or even exactly where it is! But after a couple of minor fails we were determined not to be beaten, and were justly rewarded.



    Whilst on site it was apparently no demolition had taken place for some time, whether it's due to the economic climate or not it's like the workers just went home one day and never returned leaving a real mess behind, however a good sized portion of it is still explorable and the decay inside doesn't disappoint.

    History has been covered a great deal on here before, so I'll get right on with the photos...
