  1. Thank you all again for your much appreciated feedback. I am always happy to share my photos, much better than being stuck on my computer not being seen!
  2. Melvin indeed - glad you liked them, shame that it got missed by a few people.
  3. Nice one Mookster, really like the look of this. Cracking set of photos.
  4. Thanks Ms. F - glad you enjoyed following 7 years in 3 minutes of photos
  5. Cheers Mr. D - some of the best trips I had here were in 2008 with you and the gang.
  6. Hellingly Hospital or the East Sussex county asylum was designed by architect George Thomas Hine who is known for asylums up and down the United Kingdom (St. Mary’s, Rauceby etc.) and was completed in 1903. As with many asylums, the site was largely self sufficient and even had its own farm, railway station and engineering department. It remained largely un-modernised structurally until some of the Eastern wards got the standard suspended ceilings and plasterboard divisions in the mid 1980’s. Most of the main part of the hospital was closed in the mid 1990’s and became very trashed and suffered a lot of arson damage due to the grounds being treated as public, very little on-site security and no fence until 2004 (I saw them putting it up!) Even when I first went inside, the admin block was burnt out, as was stores and it was very hard to find a single fixture or fitting that hadn’t been bent or broken. Despite this, I always liked the atmosphere at Hellingly and amongst the chaos was a very photogenic side where decay met destruction. In the time I explored it, the place kept getting more and more battered with the mortuary, laundry and even the floor of the hall being set on fire but we kept going back until partway into demolition which started in 2010. Images are from 2004-2011
  7. Welcome along Dubbed! Good to see you and a few other names on here.
  8. The place is a complete wreck these days, but you have captured some of the nicer details very well.
  9. Thankyou all for your very positive feedback. It is much appreciated and I am glad to share the pictures.
  10. I'm sure the majority of forum members have seen enough images of Pyestock to last a lifetime, and I was getting bored of even being there at one point but with the start of demolition came the curiosity to see what had gone, and a clear, frosty night sealed the deal - the whole place takes on a quite serene atmosphere. Many thanks to Aquanuke for the invite and to everyone who came from far and wide. Not much ground covered but everyone had a good time - especially with the wire wool lighting effectz.
  11. Thankyou all for your kind welcomes. I will try my best to upload some more reports - got 10 years worth to choose from but "Uncle" Stu is giving me some guidance.
