    Default Papworth Hospital Therapy Unit Dec '15


    This was a total chance find whilst trying (and failing) to find the abandoned church in Papworth Everard. Me and Harry had no idea what this place was and to be honest it looked rather crap from the outside, but walking round the back I poked my head in the window and saw a hospital dividing screen sat there pretty much inviting me in, so after a scramble we were both in and it's fair to say I was surprised here.

    Initially I thought it was some kind of general storage building but as we got further inside, the doors all had wheelchair push button openers and various signs around the building read 'ceramic studio' 'progress trackers' and such so it's likely some kind of therapy building for patients in the nearby hospital. It also featured, tucked in a dark corner, the best chair I have ever found in an abandoned building. A real supervillain's deal.

    Very nice mookster :) The church is 2 minutes away from here on the high street! There's also some nice houses with some nice stuff inside around Cambridgeshire if you like that sort of thing!

    Whatever is on the floor has been eating its way up the leg which is very odd!

    gah, I think we saw this place, but it didn't look much from the outside. Wish we had had a peek now.

    Excellent photos mate, as always
