This was a place we had wanted to visit for a long time so when it got mentioned in memory of DHL that a group of people would be getting together up here i jumped at the chance..

So myself UrbanGinger SpaceInvader met up with PaulPowers and headed in ,then met way too many people to name if i could remember who everyone was..

Nice to meet up with old and new faces..RIP dave

Thanks guys,yeah its a pig to light even with my big torc the passages are so vast doing a double tunnel shot with wideangle was impossible..one torch throws a wide beam and lights it well but even with another torch on spot setting it didnt reach the end..And Shush was a 24 hour mad visit planned to sleep there but ended up home 24 hours after i got up to go here

I've seen pics of bits that we missed, looks like I'll be heading back soon

Seriously, I've been there about 8 or 9 times and I still have not seen it all, it's physically impossible to do I think.

Nice pics both, I arrived very late to the party but still had a good time. Was a good evening, but I didn't bother taking my camera with me to Middleton so no pics from me.

      My take on Prison 15H and from what I gather there is going to be a fair few from this place coming to a forum near you Soon!
      Thanks to Phantom Bish and Camera shy for the Intel. Cheers guys.
      Seems we where out the same weekend as Mr Bish but missed him by a day..
      Early morning start and a Euro tunnel trip purely to do this place and then home intime for tea..This is an advantage of living 45 mins from the Euro tunnel, met many euro explorers while in the place and some well kitted up graffers on the way out.,Other than that no problems where had,even the Gypo colony in the car park wasn’t an issue..
      Enough bollox from me and here’s 15 of the 230 odd I took 60% of them I was happy with but no one wants to see a apic heavy report of the place!!
      Explored with Sx-riffraff,Obscurity,Spaceinvader and Urban Ginger

      I nipped over last night to check the fire damage.
      The only building that was on fire is the St Mary's building (which was a nurses home not a care home as I have written in this report). It has suffered damage to the right hand side of the building but is not totally burned out.

      There is a planning application submitted to demolish most of the buildings on the site including St Edwards. As far as I could see there has been no descision made on it yet.

      I also found this on the net (link below), it gives the whole history and a detailed report on all the buildings. There is still some unseen stuff here notably the chapel within the former St Gerards Hospital which is now offices. If demo goes ahead I'm sure it will become more accesible. It will be a shame to see these buildings go as it's a great urbex site imo.

      Hi All
      As much as we all hate to see our beloved shrines of dereliction, they all eventually either get ripped down or converted
      A lot of these are good, and a lot of them are very, very bad
      What are the best ones you have seen?
      My favourite has to be Nethernene on the hill. Located just down the road from cane hill
      Its a beauty
