  1. So, my first reasonably intact mortuary. Its pretty trashed now mind but has some nice features left. It was a nice day, the first of hopefully many in 2015. The mortuary was built at St Peters Hospital in Chertsey, Surrey in the 1940's but closed when it was decided its positioning on the edge of the hospital site was unsuitable for the high volume of bodies, so a new mortuary opened closer to the main building in 2009 leaving this one redundant. 6 years has taken its toll and much of what remained has been stolen or rotted into the ground. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 And Finally a obligatory tourist shot! #7 More at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/landie_man/sets/72157650632227579/
  2. St Peters Ceminary in Cardross , Scotland. We made the daft mistake of going late in a summers afternoon...and before we knew, we were in the middle of no where...inside this old ceminary...I found this place pretty creepy, and felt like we were being constantly watched!! A little history..... Following a fire in 1946 at St. Peter's Seminary in the Glasgow suburb of Bearsden, a new home was needed for the seminary. Discussions began with Gillespie, Kidd & Coia in 1953, but the plans for a new college in the village of Cardross were not finalised until 1961, when building began. It is one of only 42 post-war buildings in Scotland to be listed at Category A, the highest level of protection for a building of "special architectural or historic interest". It has been abandoned since the end of the 1980s, and is currently in a ruinous state. Despite a number of proposals for reuse or renovation of the building, its future remains insecure. It was nice and bright outside when we entered.... Graffiti my soul..... Charred..... Entrance to hell..... Who turned the lights off.....? All we want is light again.....
  3. Another stop on last months Scotland road trip. Had heard about this place for years and was pretty much expecting to find it in ruins, surprised to find a lot of nice features still remain and had a great time finding our way around this one. Stopped to chat to some local kids who looked all set to have a party at the altar, they where friendly enough and quite interested in what we where doing there. Only bad point, they didn't offer me one of their cans of special brew, pfhh kids today ay. Thanks for looking
  4. My first report on here, This place has been done loads, i finally got round to dropping in while in the area... Originally St. Peter’s Hospital was built to serve casualties of the Second World War, The mortuary was built in the 1940's on the edge of the site. However after extensive redevelopment of the site, the mortuary was found to be too small to cope with the increase in cadavers. This mortuary was shut down in April 2009 and moved to the new building which is central to to main hospital
  5. Big shout to sk for the nod !! The mortuary was built in the 1940's as part of an institution called Botley park And during the war years it was used for dealing with it's casualties.... Visted with Obscurity,St0rm Stealth and UrbanGinger...good day out and worth the drive and m25 crawl on the way home. Sorry for the 50mm overkill on some shots its my new toy...
