    Post St Mary's vagrancy cells, Melton Mowbray, Aug15


    Had to visit this, as itís on the proverbial doorstep, and I canít believe I didnít know about this one. Iíd missed out on the groupís previous dayís exploits, but at least I got something in, even if I was a bit unprepared. Enjoyed this atmospheric place. Donít be fooled by the photos Ė it was quite dark in there. All taken with no torch, but around 30 second exposures.

    Saw the mortuary, but unfortunately didnít get any photosÖ the police turned up, so we made a retreat.


    St. Maryís was originally a work house and later turned into a hospital, this place, unlike most others, retained some of it's original features from it's Workhouse origins. The whole Vagrant's block had been retained. Why they did this was unclear, but a small section of this small block was converted into a small Mortuary that would service both St Mary's and Melton Mowbray cottage hospitals.

    Nicely photographed. Interesting stuff. Pretty dreary place though.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Excellent work in what sounds like very difficult light situations in there!
