St Andrews Hospital at Thorpe closed in the 1990s I've been wanting to make a visit for quite a while, only to learn the asylum was sadly partially demolished and all that remains is a section of the main building and the morgue. I made the journey anyway, i didn't find much in the main building,very very dark and they've taken the stairs away there's no way up now it's pretty much just a long corridor and the downstairs rooms that have been used as a dose house for vandals. The building has now became home to loads of butterflies, in one room there was easily 20+ fluttering there wings and adding a eerie feel to the pitch black rooms.
The morgue though was interesting, looked more like a gym with the punch bag swinging from the middle of the room. gutted I didn't make it there sooner,I can imagine the building looked spectacular in its prime.
Starting with the little out building that was the morgue.

Lovely first post JD, the butterflies I believe are peacocks possible looking for somewhere to hibernate for the winter. I enjoyed it, Thanks

You've got the hang of this exploring malarky haven't you!
Excellent stuff! I'm glad I got to go round the main asylum while it was still complete then!
Missed the morgue tho, so loving this.
Thanks for sharing :)
