    Default Old Grantham Hospital, Lincs, February 2017


    1. The History
    Won't do this again as it's a revisit and the history can be found on my previous report HERE.

    I originally incorrectly identified it as the maternity wing of Grantham's embattled hospital while that wasn't true. It is infact the original town hospital for Grantham that opened in 1847.

    2. The Explore
    Wasn't originally going to post the pictures. However the overcast light and the advancement of nature make it an interesting follow-on from my October 2015 report. As you can see, it's still very much sealed and going further down hill. For me this place is all about the roof. It is varied and, in parts, quite architecturally interesting. And, sadly, in places, going down hill.

    3. The Pictures

    I can see the appeal of these buildings and your interest shows from your detailed pics, I hope you get inside one day, before redev or demo, redev I hope but as always sadly its a cost thing.

    Thanks for the great report:D
