Havn't been in here for a while so was interested to see how the place was surviving after another year of neglect, vandalism and arson. Its not as bad as I'd expected, and there's still plenty to see. Fire damage is very isolated thankfully.

Swimming Pool still needs a clean

Messy Cooridoors....

And the fantastic stage/chapel

This is actually my favourite, one of the nurse's bedrooms, in a completely bizaar state.

All in all, still a good explore, the amount of rooms and cooridoors is epic, many and hour to be spent in there if you have the time.

Re: Cherry Knowle - 13/1/08

Can you still drive around this site without being bothered by security? Want to take the missus down to get some shots of the exterior(shes a photography student).

I used to play cricket down there a few years ago and can't recall the site being closed down and was wondering if I would get bother just wondering around for old times sake taking external shots.

I don't think you'll be able to drive around the buildings, But you should be ok to park and walk in. The green out the back is regularly used by dog walkers so I doubt that you will have any trouble.

Let us know how you get on!
