    Default Stone House Hospital (again), Stone - Jan 12 - Pic Heavy, Soz


    I had driven past this place many a time, sitting in my car staring at the amazing buildings, surrounded with 10ft palisade fencing, wondering how to get in there.

    Today my luck was in, construction had started on the site, or should I say demolition. I went for the brazen approach, slung on my hard hat and hi-vis vest, and strolled in.

    As I entered; I thought I had been rumbled as someone approached me, but he asked were the site office was as he had a fuel delivery to make, so I pointed him in the right direction.

    The only entrance to the building I could see was the central hall, were there were contractors sandblasting, I braved up and walked through the room, gave an "alright mate", and was in.

    I had a good wonder around the place, but I feel the most impressive thing about this hospital is the outside of the buildings, which are quite stunning. I did find the basement section, but had forgot my torch, still managed a good wonder around though with only the light of the viewer on my camera. Spotted a small tunnel of one of the chambers, but was not willing to go further without a torch.

    Once I had had my fill of corridors and peeling paint I headed towards the way I came in. Its strange how you feel the world knows what you doing, but really they have no clue, and most don't give a damn anyway.

    I could see my car, so I sped up my pace and stripped of my hat and vis, home and dry I thought. Then a police car pulled upside me, I thought I had been busted and got very hot all of the sudden The window wound down and the officer asked if I was security for the site!. I nearly laughed in his face, but managed to hold it in. "No" I replied, "I'm a builder going for my lunch" . With that we said our goodbyes and he left. Phew!

    Fortune favours the bold and apparently the brazen. Nice write up, lovely pics. Thanks for sharing.

    It's possible to get away with stuff like this if you believe in yourself and convince yourself you actually are meant to be there as you've proven! Worthwhile too, you got some great pictures there, well done :)

    A dumper driver kept looking at me suspiciously, so when he went past I made out I was looking at an inspection chamber that had lost its lid, I done an exaggerated tut, took a piccie, and made as if I was writing something down. My motivation was H&S inspector
