    Default St Georges, Stafford - May '08


    Ok, I'd heard some demolition work had started, so I figured I had to go see this place. I really hit myself when I got there as I realised I hadn't researched this place anywhere near as much as I should have.

    Pictures..





























    Conlusion; I'll HAVE to go again, the place was just so photogenic and there were way too many areas we intended to come back to and didn't. Also, I failed to reach the water tower :(

    Nice pictures mate, amazing what a bit of sunlight does to liven up the mood. When I went last it was all a bit dark and scary! :)

    Not 100%, but I think it's the laundry building. Most of the front of it is gone - I managed to have a quick look around while everyone was at lunch.

    Also less snakes and more pigeons. "Pigeons; why does it have to pigeons?" as Indy would of said

    Love your corridor shots; especially with sunlight. That sign in picture #8 was on the wall not long ago; who knocked it off??

    interesting.. the laundry building is to the left of the main building if you are looking at it from the front (near the prison). it is nothing like the main asylum, light bricks and green metal top end / roof.

    i'm not actually in staffs at the moment, but will be at some point - i'll stop by and have a look!

    the laundry building is the least likely building to be demolished i would say it looks fairly in tact inside.

    if any one is up for another visit sometime soon i am 100% game!

    thats what i was thinking..

    but then if they're clearing the site for the new development i suppose it would have to go, they'd probably put a car park there.
