    Talking Rauceby Mental Asylum - Rauceby, Sleaford, Lincolnshire - April 2013


    Theres been a bit of interest in the site of late, maybe due to the fact that secca are nowhere to be seen! Great day out with Moorebag and a guest explorer who fell 8ft onto a brick. He gained a very nasty bruise and some gained knowledge - always carry a torch! The history of this amazing site is common knowledge now so I will not bore you with the history of it. We all climbed to the top of the clock tower, very glad that pigeon shit isnt harmful to humans!

    On with the show...

























































    Thank you for looking and heed the warning, look before you walk through a darkened door....:icon_evil
