    Default Rauceby Mental Hospital!


    Rauceby hospital closed in 1997. It housed mentally ill patients. Over half of the site was demolished quite a few years back but the remaining buildings are all here to stay because they are now grade 2 listed!The site is now for sale for 1 million pounds!

    The Explore!

    The luck with this explore was incredible! We were informed that security turn up every day and that we arrived hours before they were scheduled to arrive! So we managed to explore about three quarters of the site before people started taking pictures of us through the fence so we called it a day there! Over all id give the site a 6-7 out of ten! Its pretty bare!

    Enjoy the pictures! ;)

    The Reception



    Rear of the site!



    Bathroom Block





    Creepiest photo yet of the crows fleeing from the haunted asylum!



    Main hospital entry



    I assume this was a canteen of some sort?!





    It had a beautiful indoor garden too...







    Theres also a modern part to the asylum aswell that I have yet to explore!



    Thanks for viewing!

    The modern part is Greylees, Douglas Bader met his wife there while they pioneered plastic surgery on his hands...

    good to see this old girl again, visited here back in 2003 with simon the asylum expert, the place was virtually mint internally then, it even smelt of hospital wards ! the hall was intact, and so was admin, which had stunning victorian dark green embossed tiles down the corridors by the front entrance door, for some stupid resaon all this was stripped bare when that housing estate was built totally ruining its interior.
