We visited St John's Hospital in Lincolnshire on Sunday, here is our video. Although we were told the security at the hospital was extremely tight we didn't actually come across any security at all! They must have been having a day off lol.
Visited with Wevsky and Space Invader Ive found a little history on St Johns mainly after reading bits on various sites across the web and other reports gleaned from various other forums. St Johns Hospital built originally in 1837 as an infirmary to a local workhouse, had various bits "added" to it over the years, started closing down in 2005 and finally came to an end 18/11/2010 when all its staff and services were re-located to Bromsfield Hospital. In its 133-year history, more than 100,000 babies were born inside the hallowed walls of the hospital's famous maternity ward. Right on with some pics And some "Inside" shots Im not normally a fan of Grafitti but I thought the above was pretty dam good Ill apologise if my post is a bit "pic heavy" but I really love snapping away Hope to be doing lots more in the future, my thanks to Wevsky and Space Invader for a great day out !
St.Johns's Hospital Chelmsford Visited with Skeleton Key, Tstranger1066 and Priority 7 The doors of St John's Hospital – where half of Chelmsford's population was born – swing shut for the final time on November 18th, 2010, marking the end of a vast chapter in the town's history. Nurses who have worked at the centre for decades fought back tears as they packed their equipment and mementos into a sea of blue plastic boxes. Pictures signifying a thousand happy memories were stripped from its peeling yellow walls, rows of empty beds pushed through bare corridors and a fleet of trucks delivered everything to the new £148 million wing at Broomfield Hospital. But there are fears the site, now prime for housing, could become a wasteland. Thanks for looking
