    1.


    This a a place we explored some time ago and had been watching for over 2 -3 years waiting for the closure to happen. The Building had wings and parts that where no longer used and in those 2 years we took only pictures left only footprints, in preparation for the big one to come. We new we had to be careful as climbing the stairs one night, we overheard two nurses having a conversation on the other side of a frosted glass door :o . we crept back into the basement :)) :)) Returning during this time was a fantastic, as the people involved new how to keep it quite. while most people where talking about exploring it we had started

    Roll the clock forward, my exploring partner heard through his contacts the place was shutting last patients and staff leaving. The news we had been waiting for, so we swung into action with our plan. Within 3 days we where inside the building along with the security guys familiar ground for us . So to begin with we stowed our stuff and only took out cameras and tripods and also changed out boots for clean dry trainers. The place was as quite as a tomb and dirty boots would have also left a trail not to mention the noise. So it was stealth mode for us both.

    The live ins are still there and the placed is rigged up with PIRs and security are totally on the ball. A mate from back home has been trying this place repeatedly over the last couple of years and failed every time. I'm gonna send him a link to this just to wind him up haha! Really enjoyed your pics mate, I doubt we will see anything more of this place for a while.

    This place got a bit of media attention recently. Apparently some fucktards chanced their luck and tried to do over one of the live in security guards not long ago. My mate that I mentioned who has tried several times is now on first name terms with this chap, he popped down after the unwanted publicity and apparently he is at the point he carries a bat because he feels so vulnerable and the company he works for wont do anything to help. At the end of the day, he is only doing his bloody job. Nobody deserves that. Real shame. This is one of the few places local to where I grew up or used to live that I haven't bothered with but wished I'd gone to when it was doable. Didn't give you a nod for your choice of name by the way mate, it its perfect! ; )
