    Arrow Harold Wood Hospital Mortuary, Essex, July 2011


    Here's some pictures from a quick visit to the mortuary building within the Harold Wood Hospital in Essex.

    Didn't do the rest of the hospital, just the mortuary. We had a close call with security on the way out, they probably missed us by about 30 seconds!

    The Harold Wood Hospital closed in 2006, demolition started last year.

    I'm sure you take great care when exploring mortuaries. I hope so anyway. Sometimes they are not too careful after that last autopsy and spores can live for a surprising time. I've seen fellow urbexes lying on mortuary tables that could well be carrying all kinds of nasty surprises. (And yes, I am speaking from some considerable knowledge as former APT)

    Fantastic photos! Last saw a mortuary a few months ago in a asylum in Australia!

    Sad to say it's all gone! Pretty much stood on it's pile of rubble on Saturday without even realising it used to be the morgue
