    Default Melton Mowbrary Hospital, Leicester, November 2015


    This one was a bit of a fail/win. Went across to Melton Mowbrary to see the Vagrancy Cells. Fail in that I didn't see them as the building I thought was them turned out to be something else and as I was pushed for time I returned without seeing them. However, what I did manage to see was still quite interesting (another part of the hospital that is abandoned). Info on the hospital itself is quite scarce. There is some history on the Vagrancy Cells block but I’ll leave that until I revisit. The hospital itself is still open so it’s a bit weird exploring abandoned buildings next to a ‘live’ site. The NHS are looking to sell off a number of former hospital buildings that now lay empty and boarded up. I explored two buildings to the south-west of the site: the former boiler room and what looks to have been an entertainment block which acted as a meeting place/place to put shows etc on. Here are the pictures.

    First up the former entertainments block/club house style building:

    Ah, an invitingly open door!

    This looks like a bit of a stage for performances:

    A very dark kitchen area:

    Ooo…look at that wall paper!

    On to the former boiler room:

    Looks like they just left everything behind:

    A Boiler-room diploma certificate:

    Lots of old soap dispenser boxes:

    Ceiling in need of a re-paint:

    The boiler room itself:

    Thanks to this cute little skylight:

    I think that has to be the first "please leave taps running" sign I've ever seen...

    A great little find, with an open door. More than makes up for your fail. :)
