this is my first post so take your time with me:mrgreen:
Visited this with dj-fresh,Its in poor condition but i love this place as you can almost feel its history its a big place and could take a whole day unfortunatly we only had a few hours to go

this was a nursing home with a ward opened later on for people with mental illness

bit late for that

Good pics.
The place looks huge.
You must get a mask and get down them tunnels, it would be rude not to.

could not agree with you more ive got a proper mask i use at work somewhere,But need some company as im alittle chicken going down by myself as this place is off the beaten track and really spooky feel to it with noises and shadows and only 1 way in and is really huge,we kept hearing bangs so made a quick retreat shame it looks like its going,

I really apreciate the comments as being new im still trying to get a feel for it and nice to know if im doing it right or wrong :)

think thats half my problem as my sister is a big member of a ghost club so told my all about the place and a room in here where all the patients even if healthy became ill and terrified,
hi nice to meet you again
really good place if you ever get the chance to visit but dont think its going to be there much longer as since i last went earlier this month the poster has gone up
