I know this has been done several times, but I want to put my photos on anyway.
This place is my first hospital, and is oh-so creepy, despite the fact that it has been chavved to death.
I believe it was built in the twenties, but the scourge of modern society that is the chav and pikey has unleashed lashings of pure hell on it to make it like it is now. Everything is smashed. I guess that is what you get from having no security, easy for us but we don't really get much reward from it.
The main hall has been recently burnt out, with the stage front destroyed, as well as the top of the stage. There is evidence of the scumbags using it as a skate park too. The roof has collapsed in the pool room, with soaking wet insulation covering the floor like a yellow, sickly blanket.
It is very scary, especially if you visit with just one other person, I was convinced we were being followed, I ended up throwing a brick at a pile of broken glass in a corner and it saw them off, if they were real. Probably a gypsie.
It is a place I definately want to do properly, but when I have more people to go with.
On with the pictures anyway.

On the roof of maintenace block


Looking down at the destruction


Down the lift shaft


The Rolls-Royce of the UE world


We moved on to what seemed to be the kitchen, and found a refrigerated room


Serving area in Dining Room


Ladies toilets are not too badly trashed


Wards, our next stop


The curtains are not on fire I suppose...


A scene of destruction awaits you as you enter the next room


My favourite photo of this rushed 40 minute visit. I will return and get some good ones I promise


Pikies have had the radiators


Our last stop was the main hall, it has been fire damaged seemingly by chavs letting off fireworks in it


The fire damage, it is worse than it looks


We finally moved to the pool room, where the corridor roof has caved in, the pool is not too bad though, apart from all the debris.


Thanks for looking, despite the horrific scenes.
James :)

The projector box is now a plant room accessed at the rear of the hall via 2 stairwells.
There is nothing up there though except pipes and heating equipment.
the projector windows that you can see in the hall have been bricked up in the plantroom side.

God knows
The projector room above the hall was a modern boiler house when I last visited with the Pirate and Ashless, and the maintenance block was actually in pretty good condition, at least to what it is now. Sooner they flatten it the better in my opinion - its just a strain on local taxpayers due to the numerous fire brigade and police callouts.

As much as I'd hate to see it demolished, it would probably be for the best, the place is just going to get more and more vandalised. In fact, demolishing the newer bits and restoring the older bits would be better as the older blocks are actually quite nice buildings and reasonably structurally sound.
Like I said, I HATE chavs and gypsies.
