    Default Barrow Hospital, Barrow Gurney - 2012


    I know the history has been done loads of times on here, so won't bore you all with it. Just wanted to share some photos from a few recent visits as an update on the site.
    It is my local site so very familiar with it and have paid it lots of visits over the last year and a half, and my goodness has it declined!
    Security is non existant, and the site has very much fallen victim to chavs and vandals. Just in the space of about 3 - 4 years since the first explorers visited it back in 2008, the hospital has changed massively.

    This is my first report on this forum, so any comments and feedback will be appreciated.

    On with some shots:

    We didn't see the wheelchair. I enjoyed the Mother & Baby unit the most when we went. That curved corridor is great isn't it!

    I love the curved corridor, one of the famous shots form old Barrow, so much potential with it!

    Wow. and I mean wow, I went there around 2007-08 I forget now, but it certainly didn't look that bad, it's amazing what 4/5 years can do to a derelict building.
