Lancaster moor asylum opened in 1816 under the county asylums act and over the years was extended. As with a lot of asylums villas were added. At Lancaster they opened the Ridge Lea villa which would act as a hospital for private patients, set back from the main building its still a lovely looking building externally. The hospital was in use for patients till 2014 and finally closed in 2016.
I was on the way to Scotland to visit the girlfriend so was passing and thought I would give it a look as I have seen a few pics floating around. Thankfully it was still open. A nice relaxed visit. I was quite shocked with the level of decay that it has only been shut a realativley short time. It's been pulled about quite heavily by wire thieves, but it was in better condition than expected. I actually really enjoyed the visit and the decay is really nice.

Little sh#ts!

I was shocked it was a girl of prob 14 carrying hammer, we got in through roof so was a bit tricky, had been in there about an hour then saw lights & realised there was someone in there. they had blatantly ripped a boar off one of the main windows.
we did scare the shit out of em with my mates wand light on blue red strobe which was funny then I did have a right go at em for their stupidity.
Funny to my mate flew drone after we got out & we watched security walk up to building lol

Haha! Be no hope me getting through the roof, get my arse stuck getting through windows! I did an explore last year where a group of lads were already inside. It was really dark, me and a friend had a great time banging and tolling things across the floor! They were terrified!

"they had blatantly ripped a boar off one of the main windows." What a pig of a place it must be!
