    Default The Mortuary


    Most of you know I have been recording the development of Fairmile Hospital over the last four years, well now I think it is time to show some of the photos I took round the place. I'll start with one place many looked for but never got the. The Mortuary

    The fridge and body trolly. One of the local lads hid in it and was taken to a ward, when they opened it up he arose and got out. Scared the shit out of the attendants and he nearly lost his job. He's a couple of years older than me and still around

    The mortuary has now been converted into a house and I wonder if they know the history of the place.
    Hope you enjoyed the tour as it will not be shown on any other fourm though you can read about it on my blog. I will be showing more of the place in the future when I get the photos loaded on Flickr. :)

    Hello again Nightcrawler. Just when I though Fairmile had been razed it pops it's head up again!..... Brilliant report and pics as always!
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Thanks for posting this, I wonder how many people can say they live in a former mortuary?
