    Default Rauceby mental asylum, Lincs, Jan13


    The first of 2 visits on a snowy day earlier this year. Cracking site.

    Wed heard most of it had gone, but were surprised by how much there is left, so we spent a lot longer on site than planned. The buildings have long been stripped, and floors removed, but there is still a dark atmosphere to the place.

    The hospital was used to film 'the lucifer effect' but trailers for the movie are scarce on the internet.

    The history has been done before, but in a nutshell Rauceby was a mental health asylum, Opened in 1902, and closed in 1998. It was taken over briefly in wartime by the RAF as a hospital.

    Thats a sad set of photos. This was one of my first explores around nine years back and I remember it like yesterday which is unusual for me ! The contractors that were there at the time clocked of at 1pm then we had the place to ourselves for the rest of the day starting in the mortuary and finishing in admin.T he only explore I had done previous to this was High royds mortuary so to have a plce of this size next was amazing and somewhat daunting. Happy times....

    Yeah, I'm a few years late, and imagine it would have been even more interesting back then.
