      Location: Rochester Police Station
      Date Visited: March 2008
      Present Status: Derelict and Decaying
      Future Plans: Not certain, but probably demolition and housing
      Rochester police statiion was origenally built sometime in the 50's judging by it's style, and is surprisingly small inside for a major town police station, you can see how they really crammed people into the offices by the number of phone points and desks in each area. It was vacated in 2005/6 when a brand new state of the art police station was opened at Brompton, Gillingham covering the whole of the Medway towns from a single location.
      The buildings are in a bit of a state inside due to its location offering the opportunities to local youths to do their best at trashing the building. There was a lot of furnature and other items in the building when we visited, I understand these have now been removed, and the building is more-or-less a shell. The view from the top of the building is brillient, right across medway in all directions. It's pretty much the highest structure in the area.
      I expect it will be demolished and housing built on the land, as it's an ideal location for development.
      On with some photos.





















      Thanks for looking

      The station was opened on 10 August 1896 by the Glasgow Central Railway. The station building was on ground level, and the platforms were underground, beneath the Glasgow Botanic Gardens. It was closed between 1 January 1917 and 2 March 1919 due to wartime economy, and closed permanently to passengers on 6 February 1939, with the line being closed on 5 October 1964

      Another rooftop that's been on my list since i began Urbex and photography 2 and a half years ago.

      Europa house 63m high, constructed in 1969 for offices.
      I'm not sure when the place closed... but it's now being redeveloped for (I'm assuming) uni student accommodation.
       
      Explored with @CuriousityKilledTheCat, @TheVampiricSquid & @Biebs
       
      Enjoy

      History
      High Royds Hospital (formerly known as the West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum) first opened on the 8th October 1888. The main purpose of the asylum was to contain and restrain mentally ill patients. People often spent decades imprisoned in the asylum, which was recognized in the High Royds Cemetery which stands as a testament to those who spent their last days there. People lived very repetitive and lonely lives in the asylum due to poor care and understanding of mental illness in the 19th century, and it was common for people to be admitted for minor mental illnesses, such as phobias, anxiety and learning disabilities.
      The asylum was given the name Menston Mental Hospital in the 1920's, (and eventually became High Royds Asylum in 1963), and cures for mental illness were considered as an alternative to simply storing patients. The use of shock therapy was introduced with the intention of putting patients into a relaxed mental state, however this resulted in many patients screaming in pain, and sometimes caused them to become unconscious. Lobotomy was also a popular treatment at High Royds around this time.
      The hospital was closed in 2003 because it had become outdated and unsuited to modern psychiatric practice.
      The site is now being redeveloped into a new village, and all that remains is the admin block, which is grade II listed. Some features of the hospital will remain, such as the clock tower and ballroom.
       
      I've been here a few times so the photos are from various trips. I only ever got to see the Admin block but it was worth it for the clock tower and ballroom which I'm glad they're keeping. Explored with @plod and a few others. Sadly this place is now a no-go, I think its safe to assume somebody had been caught by the residents which brought attention to the access point, as they always seem to have their eyes out. I'm glad I at least got to see the last little bit that was left while it still stands though.

      The former British Gas building was built in the 1960's and at 147ft is the 21st tallest building in Leeds. Originally to be demolished, this building currently has plans of being converted into a hotel designed by Simpson Haugh and partners. The podium building will also be extended and raised to four storeys along its full length, and work is now progressing on the demolition phase.
       
      I was with @plod and another user from 28DL when I explored this in June but I have since come back a few times and built up a series of photos taken from late afternoon through to the night. Pretty cool place this, the views are amazing. It's definitely worth the huge trek up those stairs  As I still currently use a bridge camera, not all of my pictures turned out all that good due to photographing in unfavorable conditions for the most part but I wanted to show them anyway.
