    Default Barrow Gurney Mental Hospital


    Hi

    As promised last week, here is a report of my first Urbex experience. Me and friend visited somewhere close to home (Bristol) and that we knew wouldn't encounter too much trouble. Barrow Gurney Mental Hospital. (Booooo, you say, It's been overdone.) The place had some construction vehicles in, and some security fencing up, restricting access. A quick walk through the woods took us right to the spot. The place was in tatters and pretty much all stripped, as we expected, but I am still quite pleased with some of the photos I got and really enjoyed the day. :)
