1. The History
Won't do this again as it's a revisit and the history can be found on my previous report HERE.

I originally incorrectly identified it as the maternity wing of Grantham's embattled hospital while that wasn't true. It is infact the original town hospital for Grantham that opened in 1847.

2. The Explore
Wasn't originally going to post the pictures. However the overcast light and the advancement of nature make it an interesting follow-on from my October 2015 report. As you can see, it's still very much sealed and going further down hill. For me this place is all about the roof. It is varied and, in parts, quite architecturally interesting. And, sadly, in places, going down hill.

I can see the appeal of these buildings and your interest shows from your detailed pics, I hope you get inside one day, before redev or demo, redev I hope but as always sadly its a cost thing.

Thanks for the great report:D

Cheers man. Me too. Sadly think demo is the more likely outcome here...

Looks good, can you not get in any where ?

Not that I could spot. Also slap bang in the middle of a 'live' hospital.
