    Default Bedford Workhouse May 2017


    Well on a quick trip out with Little Feisty and Urbexekul, which shall hence forth be known as Savage Sunday after a visit to another location. I had been checking this site out for several years and honestly believed I had missed the boat after xSession9x reported hoarding had been put up, but not one to be deterred we took a look anyway.
    After a quick cruise round the exterior, in an understated car that would blend into the surroundings without issue, we managed to locate a possible entry and after a few minutes we were in and the buzz of urbex that I hadn't felt properly for almost a year....it's good to be back and even better to be using my new camera as intended and if I may say with such undeniable skill (Check last photo ).
    The history is pretty well known so I will skip over that, suffice to say the hospital used to be expansive and now only this building remains.










    Snapped this next photo then decided I would take its advice and moved to another room (Chunky Chap Me!!)











    Below is the most ninja piece of photography you will ever have witnessed....While taking a few externals I failed to clear the railing with my foot and was sent head over heels. However like any true pro I still got an in focus and perfectly framed shot of the exterior...:)




    Note my foot just in shot so I was mid roll. I hope you enjoyed and much thanks to all those mentioned in the report.

    Really nice writeup Priority 7.
    Your ninja photo has made me feel so much better about how I'm a blundering idiot at times. Cheers to that.

    Nice photos. Sometimes a blunder can turn out to be a good result.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Amazing set of pics mate, I wouldn't expect anything less from you. That chapel is lush!
    Does this mean I have to start putting reports up again? :p
