As I was flicking through old files recently i noticed that I'd only processed about half of the pics from here. So I decided it was about bloody time I did - this is the condensed version. 

If you are interested in reading more about the institution I would recommend reading the info on the attached link, it really is fascinating.

Notes on my visit - initially I was chuffed to enjoy a stress-free visit as it was known for being a bit of a tricky one. Later that was replaced by bitter disappointment when I got to the most iconic part of the place (the ivy bathrooms). The walls had been completely covered in graffiti possibly as little as a few weeks prior. And I'm talking the most worst kind, no artistic merit whatsoever and no way of editing out in photoshop. Anyway I guess there are plenty of other shots that give a little insight into what it was like. 'Was' being the word as most of the buildings have now been demolished to build housing on the site.

Some nice rooms. The ceiling with the checkerboard pattern is special, I only know it from floors.

Mate thats pretty cool! I missed out on this. The wensleydale sign reminds me of Wallace & Gromit :D  

The second shot is my favourite, love the retro rose wallpaper and the curved ceilings in the corridors are nice.

shame about those bathrooms eh.

:comp
