Norfolk Explorer

Norfolk & Norwich Hospital Crane. Norwich, Norfolk. January 2014

Recommended Posts

Gabe got on the case and asked if I was free in Norwich in a few weeks, so a few weeks later he arrived and we decided to go have a little scout about and see what was happening.

Checked a few drains, but they were all rusted shut, checked a bunker, that was sealed tight, so that only left the crane that has appeared up at the hospital.

That concluded the afternoon, so I dropped him off and went to the the school run bits and bobs..T scoffed down and off to pick matey 'magpie Tommy' up and then to pick up Gabe.

Magpie Tommy ' lets play spot the explorer in the pub' we walk into the pub and are greeted by a bloke covered in white chalk from the mines.... Well no need to try guess how he had passed the afternoon

So we headed up to the hospital, and after playing dodge the CCTV camera we found a nice easy route in.

From the looks of the site it looked like it is going to be something big, and this is what it would appear they are building.

The new £4.5m unit will be next to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital’s Mulbarton ward and will house two more linear accelerators, bring the total of six ‘linacs’ at N&N. The first will be installed once the building work is complete, due to be by the end of summer next year, and a second is due to be installed in 2015.

This equipment provides radiotherapy for a range of cancers and works by using high energy x-rays to destroy cancer cells.

Consultant oncologist Jenny Nobes said radiotherapy is often used instead of surgery, and can have the same effectiveness.

She said: “Hopefully waiting times will be less for radiotherapy and more patients will be able to benefit from this locally.â€Â

The plans also include a new orthovoltage treatment room with equipment which can treat cancers which sit near the surface of the body, such as some skin cancers.

The new build will include a waiting area, office space and two consulting rooms and to help cancer patients avoid a hospital admission, there will be space for a new Acute Oncology Suite to provide rapid assessment and treatment for patients who are experiencing complications with their cancer or its treatment.

About 200 patients receive radiotherapy each month at the N&N, with patients referred from other local hospitals including the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn.

Now for some photos.

After we climbed down, we were just getting ready to take a few ground shots, when every generator started up and more floodlights popped on, so at this point we cut our visit rather short and headed of back to the car..

After that we dropped my mate of and decided for some easy climbing at the Mecca bingo halls. Had the usual fun here, easy climb, just got on the roof, when security pop out to have a fag and chat on the phone very loudly for ages.

      This is a repeated place and one that the whole of OS know.
      I stumbled across a old report on another forum and since havent seen many others post so here it is..
      Little Plumstead was home to Norfolk’s main “mental deficiency colony”. In recent years, it has closed down. Sadly a lot of the buildings have been demolished to make way for housing. Part of the site remains in use as a hospital. This section is due to close soon, with around 100 patients moving to community-based services.
      It has since demolished a lot of buildings including the pool leaving only 6 derelict standing buildings caked with decay and fragile floors.
      The hall itself attracts a lot of explorers and ghost hunters and has seen fire damage and metal thievery as well as tagger.

      The upstairs of all the buildings in which extensive decay can be seen, warped floors, carpet going down into the non exsistant rafters and debris and scattered paper everywhere plus that lovely smell of dampness and black mould that we all love... masks are needed although ive never worn one.

      The inside of the hall is to me like a chateu whilst ive only ever seen one on groups or forums its very simliar with its arch designs and colours.

      Every time i have gained access and seen this place, it draws me in i cant explain the feel in the hall but its almost like you are being watched and waiting for a zombie to smash through a door and come and bite you.
      There is so much decay the floors upstairs are gone in some areas and in others there simply is no floor at all, Trollys left, files scattered, medical reports everywhere, spend needles and some aperatus is left.


      Massive rooms for treatment as seen from very old pictures of the place, The asylum itself seemed to have a ward for un married women who were pregnant and were made to be treated as the public rejected them (Information to be confirmed), However no evidence of this has been seen.

      It has since been boarded up and checked on at regular intervals due to the amount of breaking in the building's recieve with thick ply and mastic being placed and security screws everywhere entrance other than the local kids breaking in is almost impossible to gain entry at least without doing it the naughty way which i personally dont agree with.

      The once grand staircase now completely trashed

      Rooftop views (Very fragile lead roof)

      Finally, im a celebrity nutter GET ME OUTTA HERE haha

      Hopefully if and when there is a entry point again we will be able to obtain more detailled pictures but until then,,,,
      Enjoy.

      Oakwood Farm
       
      The Explore
       
      A farm in Norfolk with a blue toilet which I liked. Good quality mahogany seat which was a bit dusty and the flush was defective. Toilet roll was scratchy on the anus area and dusty too. A farmer and his wife and possibly kids lived here at some point in the past. My guess is the farmer liked cars. There were lots of things to photograph here and from my 1% memory of this 'explore' that room with the wardrobe was pitch black and I called my camera lots of names that day, when in reality it was my inability to use it correctly that was the problem. And I had a poo there, while @Urbexbandoned laughed and photographed me, but that's the norm for pretty much every time we're out exploring.
       
      The History
       
      A farm in Norfolk where nobody lives anymore. The whole extended family died and it became a derp.
