    Default St John's Mental Asylum, Lincolnshire, Jan 2019


    Intro
    We'd had a number of locations for this day and decided to start by heading as far up the "Redwing Line" as we could on one train and stated off here. In the case this failed we had many locations we could try on the way back.



    The Explore
    After a walk we found ourselves looking at the renovated end of this historic Asylum. Eventually, after some sneaking we found ourselves in the most western ward.

    Damn, I thought this was long gone! Are there works taking place currently or has it all stopped again?

    Thanks, was surprised it was still here myself.

    Its a 50 50 on the works. Most corridors connecting each building have cinder blocked up but have now collapsed. There is scaffolding in the grander areas and brick work removed and on pallets, although no equipment. So I have literally no idea.

    I'm guessing the central atrium in the admin block with the famous double staircase is one full of scaffolding? I seem to remember seeing a photo of it like that a couple of years back now.

    If its the one with a stair case which splits off into two half way, yes.

    Thanks alot. We had been expecting a long struggle to get in, which surprisingly, that wasn't the case.

    Wow!didn't expect to see here again! My first ever explore. Not used this site for ages. Not sure I'm even doing this right ��
