    Default St Georges Hospital, Hornchurch, Essex - April 2018


    A few photos from an exploring roadtrip of Essex and Kent with Mookster and our American explorer friend from back in April. Another backlog, and another one where I managed to set my camera to JPEG. DOHHH!!!!

    We clambered through some undergrowth and spent about 45 minutes inside. We were in one of the large corridors and heard barking. We absolutely pegged it down the corridor; I'm carrying quite a lot of extra weight so there was no chance to sneak into a side room for 10 mins. We heard the inevitable "OI!" from about 300 yards down the corridor, we'd been seen. I don't believe in running when actually caught; so we turned back and walked up to the security and explained ourselves.

    He asked us how we got in, marched us to the gate and let us go onto the road right by my car. result!

    I think our American friend was pleasantly suprised by how easy it went down.

    St George's Hospital is a disused hospital situated on Suttons Lane in Hornchurch in the London Borough of Havering, in North East London.

    It opened its doors in 1939 as "Suttons Institution" and was used during World War II to house airmen from the nearby RAF Hornchurch.

    In 1948 during its advent into the NHS; it was renamed St George's.

    The site has remained empty since 2012 and the vacant site has since been transferred into the ownership of NHS Property Services when the company was formed in April 2013.

    There are plans are in place for a new health centre on site, with the remaining land being converted to housing; Quelle Supríse!
