    Default 'Santa Sevs' - Severalls - Christmas 2013












    Severalls Asylum
    December 2013
    Visited with sweet_pea, UE-OMJ, Urban X, Pretty Vacant, Pen15 and about 25-30 other nutters dressed as Father Christmas.
    I'm not entirely sure who else was there from the forum, so please let me know if you were there!


    The initial plan was to pick sweet_pea up at 3am and take a leisurely drive over to Severalls and pick up some Breakfast on the way, however we inadvertently decided to have an extra hours worth of beauty sleep for the group photos...
    I got a wake-up call from him at 3:50, by 4 I was out the door with a red bull in hand semi-ready to start the mission of 'Santa Sevs'

    A massive thank you to UE-OMJ for letting me use his sigma lens, as my lens was playing up and to him and Urban X for giving us a guided tour!

    A great game of cat and mouse with the famous friendly security and a reasonable policeman who actually used to work in the kitchens here. Hope you can all enjoy the photos and feel free to add yours if you were there!!



    Everyone setting up their cameras for the group shots.

    Mindless? Possibly but not really. Not to your taste? Obviously, you've made that clear... but stupidity? I'd like you to explain that one.

    Who said anything had to be urbex? And where do I sign up for the urbex police because I'd like to judge people on the internet too.

DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
