    Default Site "Y" - South Wales, April 2012 (Lots of Pics)


    Site "Y" - Derelict Hospital


    I have sat on this report for a couple of weeks because I really didn’t know if I should post it or not.

    I am sure that people will be able to tell where this hospital is but I ask that if you do, do not post it on this thread.

    Site “Y” Is a General Hospital based within the South Wales and has been derelict for just over 4 months.

    As I walked around the hospital grounds, I was shocked that there was no damage to the doors or windows. It was like it was a Sunday and they decided to close for the day. Inside was a different story though. I made my way into the first building and started to notice that metal thieves had moved in. Radiators were removed, doors were forced open and there was metal and wires everywhere.

    I have been in a lot of derelict buildings recently, most of which have not made it onto the forum yet but this one was probably the first that I was actually nervous in. It was just too quiet and because there was no broken windows or open doors (bar one or two doors) you couldn’t hear anything from the outside world – just made the place a little too quiet.

    Anyway, I can’t really say much about this site without giving the location away so I’m just going to get on with the photographs now. I hope you like them and as always, your comments would be fantastic!

    Thank You!!


























































    Thanks for looking! :)

    Nice find and pics, although its probably a bit late to try and keep it quite if the scrappys have already started pilfering the place

    Whoa! Amazing pics dude! You should be well proud of that set. All of them are spot on. Loving the selective saturation on the bollards- subtle.

    Thanks for sharing, I hope that if anyone does know it, they respect the need to keep the location out of the title.
