We didn't get as long as we wanted in here due to a couple of the group getting busted! just as I was about to climb the tower nevertheless we managed enough time to get around most of the place! Cheers for looking

  4. St Thomas's Hospital Medical School in London was one of the oldest and most prestigious medical schools in the UK and formed part of King's College London. It was part of St Thomas' Hospital which was established at the end of the 12th century. According to historical records St Thomas's Hospital Medical School was founded in about 1550. It was admitted as a school of the University of London in 1900 but remained a constituent part of St Thomas' Hospital until 1948 when it formally became part of the university. In 1982 it merged with the medical school at Guy's Hospital to form the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals. It was abandoned 7 years ago, there is ongoing asbestos removal taking place currently. Had this on the radar for a while but never got round to checking it despite taking part in other activities on site, what a mistaka to maka! My first comment upon meeting the others was that it seemed like the kind of place where they would test deadly viruses to prevent a 28 days later style outbreak, well it turns out they actually filmed scenes from the movie here, how appropriate. The site has a bit of everything if you like hospitals etc, decay, medical samples, animal cages, grand stairs, labs, not to mention service tunnels, oh and an epic tower overlooking the House of Commons. Kudos to Slayaaaa for acting quickly on a tip off, also good to meet up with him, Boomstick & Alex for the first time this week. Sentinel & extreme_ironing provided some lols on the revisit where we uncovered a few more decent bits. Anyway, well impressed with this place and onto the pics...... 1. 2. 3. Animal testing cages 4. Feeding bowls on the floor of each cage 5. Animal cage washer, not pro usage of torch in shot 6. 7. Room full of blood slides and samples from both humans and animals 8.

  5. Intro So some help from Zombizza and Oakley and I was quite excited to get here, so thanks for helping me with that! This place is pretty sweet and we found some nice bits of rat in test tubes and animal testing ephemera. rats lungs and stuff... History The building was part of St Thomas' Hospital which was established in 1173. According to historical records St Thomas's Hospital Medical School was founded in about 1550. It was admitted as a school of the University of London in 1900 but remained a constituent part of St Thomas' Hospital until 1948 when it formally became part of the university. In 1982 it merged with the medical school at Guy's Hospital to form the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals. In turn UMDS was absorbed by King's College London School of Medicine and Dentistry, but the dentists have since been split out into The Dental Institute. Unlike the hospital which in recent times dropped the possessive "s", the medical school continued with the original spelling. The building is described as: And is grade II listed (http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/en-204399-block-9-of-st-thomas-s-hospital-medical-). What is block 9? Block 9 was a major part of the medical school campus, it housed the student biology laboratories, animal testing laboratories, lecture theaters, cell pathology and much more. The building has a lot of rooms, labs, cage rooms, hall, corridors etc. It became empty and derelict when the medical schools of London merged and later this building was not needed. My visit I heard it was doable from Oakley and then Zombizza put up the lead practically the same time. The night before I was out and ready to meet Gabe, The raw and a few others for some high stuff in the city. Had some time to kill before I met them and seeing as we had organised to visit the place properly the day after, I went to check access and security. All was fine and we were in the next day with UrbanAlex, Boomstick84, Gabe and The_Raw. Had a laugh and saw some nice labs and specimens. We got through the site finding needles, bio hazardous waste, poison boxes, glass tubes with bits of rat in them, some mad sciencey glassware (Including the space bong) and some nice decay as well. I hope you enjoy my dodgy report and pics, I'm sure The_Raw will show me up a bit with his shots! Cheers! Pictures External
  6. Thomas Green came to Leeds from Carlton-on-Trent near Newark and founded the company in 1835. The company was originally located at 34 Lower Head Row (now Eastgate), Leeds, and specialised in all types of wirework, including wire weaving and galvanising. The Smithfield Foundry site in North Street was purchased in 1848 and the first buildings were erected in 1850. In 1863 a London office was opened, principally to serve the overseas trade. This was followed in 1881 by the opening of the “Surrey Works†in Blackfriars, London. Improvements in trade led to the opening of the “New Surrey Works†in 1902. Thomas Green also produced a range of steam road vehicles including fairground centre-engines, road tractors and agricultural tractors. Perhaps their most well known product in this range was the steamroller, which commenced in 1872 with a vertical boilered model for the Royal Gardens, windsor. Shortly afterward, in 1880, a convertible model (i.e. traction engine or road roller) was introduced. A conventional horizontal boilered model followed this in 1881. The range was developed to encompass the whole range of weights (3ton to 12ton) and styles (tandem roller, triple roller) which enabled them to become one of the market leaders, with around 300 machines supplied. With an eye on sports grounds, Greens introduced the first of a range of petrol engined rollers in 1905. The diesel engined DRM model in the 1930s, and lighter versions, the DRL and DRX, superseded these. In the 1960s, the “Workman†was designed together with a heavier model, the “Pacemaker.†This one is at my local cricket hut and hasnt been used for a very long time (ive never seen it running) and looks like a few parts have been stolen of it over the years
