    Post Papworth Therapy Unit


    This building is what seems to be left over from the old hospital that stood behind it before it was demolished sometime in 2009. From what I can gather it was used as some kind of therapy unit for disabled people; there are different signs indicating various activities/workshops in the building. The decay is setting in well here but on the whole it isnít too vandalised.















































    Thanks for looking,

    Rubex

    The offices are pretty well messed up but a good post and photos.

    I like this place - its not to new but its not to old - the decay is setting in and you can see where nature is starting to take over - i bet that was a good explore.

    Compared to the hospitals I've visited recently - this place is mint haha. Thankfully the vandals / arsonists have obviously yet to discover this Therapy Unit so was nice to see items left to photograph. Particularly liked the examination curtain and motorised office chair! Great photos Rubex - really enjoyed this

    You've got another winner again Rubex. That second picture does it for me :)
    No one ever wins. No one finally loses, except the dead. Under the sun they rot together with absolute biological equality.

    I like this place a lot. It's a shame the hospital behind it is gone! The figure in the last photo looks like a toy I used to have. Wonderful photos!
