    Great Britain Ridge Lea 7 years on 3/18/24

    Ridge Lea has been many things: Mental institute, hospital and now a ragged old box, remnant of its old days, covered in graffiti. Although it isn't as beautiful or big as its brother building Lancaster Moor Hospital it still is a flashback to the past's horrors. If you choose to visit I...

    Great Britain 14 years of asylum-seeking

    Back in 2018 I posted this thread: I kind of thought the jig was mostly up as far as asylums were concerned by then, and each time there was another, I'd have this kind of melancholic feeling that it was going to...

    Germany Hospital Hilltop

    The former general hospital was built at the beginning of the 20th century. After around 100 years it was shut down despite numerous protests by medical staff and the local population. Keeping it in operation was considered "unprofitable" - allegedly also because of not meeting the modern...

    Belgium Hospital D - Nov. 2019

    History: The year was 1954 and the local city where this place is located faced a major problem. The current hospital which dated back to the begin of the 1900s was outdated and too small. After this problem, plans were made to build a new state of art hospital. In 1958 it was finished, for the...

    Great Britain Royal Papworth Hospital, Cambridgeshire, October 2019

    Royal Papworth A little while back I posted my initial report from the site from a few days after closure and as you'd expect it was full of equipment. Living fairly close to the hospital and with a few few hours to kill we decided to have mooch and see what was left. Spoiler alert, nothing...

    Great Britain CMH, Aldershot, 2019

    Hospital Of Bleeding Doors It's been a little while since I last posted a thread and will probably remain a rare occurrence, if I'm honest. But anyway, here a thread. The Hospital Dating back to 1879 CMH, built by Messrs Martin Wells and Co., was named after the duke of Cambridge and opened on...

    Great Britain Essex Hospital, May 2019

    A little while before our first of two visits I had been surfing the internet for hospital closures, looking for a site some way away. Then, out of nowhere, this pops up.... At first I was skeptical and decided to have a little dig in the forums and almost nothing turned up. So it was...

    Great Britain Whitchurch Hospital 2019

    Visited back in January to relive the good old days.

By the turn of the twentieth century Cardiff had continued with this out-sourcing...

    Great Britain The NSRI, March 2019

    The Intro After stumbling across photos of the beedy eye'd operating lights back in early 2018 I'd spent quite a while looking for the site. Only to realise  it's almost 150 miles away, which on trains that run mostly on diesel, is not fun. So we put it off until September and went for two...

    George AFB USAF Hospital - December 2018

    Alright, this is my first post on here but I will get right to it. This hospital is trashed beyond belief but was still fun to explore. It was shut down in 1992 after the USAF pulled out of George AFB following the end of the cold war. These pictures were taken in December of 2018.
