  1. Red Cross Hospital History Before it's closure at some point during the 1980's, it served as a children's hospital. It was thought to have been founded around the turn of the 20th century. The hospital was owned and managed by the charity 'Red Cross Italy' which becomes apparent from the rather large red cross on the ceiling of the chapel. The building itself resides near the edge of the mountain, roughly about 1100 metres above sea level which was a common practice for medical facilities Italy. It was believed that the air was fresher up in the mountains, more therapeutic and held medicinal properties, which was beneficial for the treatment of the patients. Our Visit Visited with @aWorldinRuins and @Ninja Kitten on a recent trip to Italy. This was the first stop on the tour and a revisit for myself. I was glad to go back, it's a very beautiful and photogenic location, in my opinion. I loved seeing all the beds, the chapel and the little classrooms again. As always, hope you enjoy my report! If you've got this far, thanks for reading
  2. Red Morgue Hospital History I couldn't find huge amount history on this location but from what I've gathered the hospital was built at some point in the early 20th century. It was funded by investors and at a time when nursing care was predominately carried out by the clergy. They wanted the hospital to become more secular in order to distance themselves from the church. The hospital was mainly used for surgery and featured several operating theatres but later on a maternity ward and outpatient clinic was introduced. About 90 years later the orginal hospital building was combined with a larger nearby hospital. The Red Morgue hospital was eventually closed around 2013. By this time it was only used to see outpatients, as most of it's services were provided by the new hospital which was more modern and sophisticated. Visit Visited with @darbians on a weekend trip to Belgium. I was really keen to see this one after finding out about it and seeing a few photographs. It was great to see an old hospital in fairly good condition with some items still left, combined with a nice bit of decay. As always, hope you enjoy my photos ? (Spot the rookie error ?) If you've got this far, thanks for reading!

  4. Second report tonight, not doing too bad! Been wanting to get this set up for a while now, and here it is Visited with AndyK!, PROJ3CT M4YH3M and Kriegaffe9. A nice relaxed explore this with some great photo opportunities, after waking up early and visiting Mono Orphanage to start the day off we set off on the 2 hour journey to reach this place. On the way we managed to burst the tyre on the hire car But it didn't slow us much, spare on and on we went. Upon arrival we didn't know what to expect access-wise, but it proved to be easy enough by just walking in the door Anyway.. Photos: Cheers all
  5. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ So it's a normal mundane Tuesday afternoon at work and a text comes in from ZeroUE. Was I up for exploring a location that's been sealed up for ages and needs visiting ASAP before it's sealed up again? It would be silly not to, so off I goes. Inside was pitch black throughout and seemed much bigger than we expected. Lots of rooms full of random stuff too. Thanks to ZeroUE for the info - and the extra lumens!!! ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Here's some history on it all 'lifted' from elsewhere.. Built in the early 1800's and was the rather grand home of few big cheeses until the early 1920's when it became a private school for girls. Listed status given in November 1966. In 1974 it was home to various council departments including social services, housing and maintenance. It's been unoccupied since 2006 and in 2011 it failed to reach its reserve price at auction. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ WARNING - This report contains extreme lens distortion that some viewers may find unsettling. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Well, it is nearly Christmas An original wrought iron cantilever staircase: There was a room upstairs that at one time must have been used for secure document storage. A few items remained and this one was quite moving And finally the original ballroom, most recently used as a council chamber
  6. Following on from a visit to Crying Baby, it was on to Red Cross. So called as in the Chapel roof there was a red cross... To be honest, I think this site could do with a rename. If the images of a couple of years ago are to be believed, this cross has faded mighty quick!!! I did attempt to "construct" a cross of sorts - torch came in handy for this shot of the confessional There were a couple of floors of rooms full of beds, and in my opinion more photogenic than Crying Baby. That might be because of the lack of graffiti though, rather than anything else At the end of the room was a communal wash area, signs of the length of time since this was abandoned from the tree.... Thank you for viewing
  7. A long overdue revisit to this lovely farmhouse in the Welsh countryside. Getting in was a tad more difficult this time due to Mr Farmer chucking great piles of cow s**t round any access points and doing a 'Rayner' and letting his prize Hereford bull roam the site! Luckily though, he was more interested in his 'harem' than he was with me... ...RED DRESS MANOR... by A couple more UK derps to post up and then its back to Europe! Ta for lookin'
  8. Evening all, Seems like my 2nd report from Italy is another hospital. This is quite a well known spot in Italy but still quite photogenic. Abandoned sometime ago and was previously used by the Red Cross to treat children hence the amount of dormitories. The famous chapel, which the red cross after which its named is fading fast. A lot of this was derelict and with some rain, a lot of it was pouring in. On with the photos. Thanks for looking in.
  9. I know this site has been done to death but I wanted to visit it before it got publicised and thankfully I did. Visited one wet weekend in October just before it was splashed all over the Daily Mail website with location and all given. I just hope it doesn’t go all down hill from now and gets destroyed like Potters Manor…. It was my first UK explore since earlier this year as I turned more to Europe now. A relatively quick visit but the place still has some good parts to see. I won’t bore you with details as history has been well documented here and now the Daily Mail, so here is my take on this place. Pictures:
  10. Cosy Manor of the Red Dress, September 2013. Looks like this place has had a lot of attention as late, but it was a location i been wanting to go see for a age now and as me and Mrs LP had some time on are hands we decided to go pay her a visit and so glad we did, the place has been pretty much covered , this is my take hope you enjoy ? Thanks so much for taking the time to look
  11. They, whoever 'they' are, say nothing ventured nothing gained. So given that the location is near my birthplace and the old stamping ground, off I went. The adrenaline was proper pumping - I was of course on my tod, and not sure quite what to expect. Would the 'occupier' be in residence? But I thought - this is an experience I had to make the most of, something not many folk would have a chance to do. I think the house is what I expected. There was a melancholy feel which wasn't helped by evidence of ransacking. Sometimes achingly sad. But I could also occasionally sense it had been a happy place once. I know nothing of the history apart from it was built around 1725 in the early Georgian style. There's been quite a few alterations since and of course it's been left to rot for half a century. There are a lot more questions than answers. Here is my collection, some familiar to you but hopefully some not so... On leaving I found myself facing a large beast which had horns and an udder (huh???) with a youngster so I thought it better to wait till there was a better moment to leg it across the yard!
  12. Following on from Stussys report the other week, heres my take on the place. It was getting late after a long day and to be honest I wanted the fire engine and that was about it, however, the place has a bit of charm about it, and I we caught it as the sun was going down so the light turned out nice in some shots. next 2 taken 30 mins apart, shows what difference the light can do I`ve only 2 more reports to put up from Belgium then I`m done you`ll be glad to hear........... until I go back in November Cheers The Baron
  13. After setting up camp for the first day, we headed here to the derpy hospital with the infamous red fire truck as the sun was setting. With locals in their garden having a BBQ, we tried to be stealthy, but soon gave up as the fire truck was in clear view of them. They didn't even bat an eyelid at us thankfully. Thanks for looking
  14. 2013: I don't think this derp has had any more splores posted. 2010: No info really on this place, except it had 17 en suite bedrooms, all with colour tv, tea and coffee making facilities, and did conferencing. Still has half full barrells of cider and beer. Place is trashed to high heaven, shame really. It appeared to close after the 2002 season, the half full strongbow barrell expired in 2003. Tripod was knackered and camera walls FULL of condensation, the weather was absolutley terrible. The first floor was absolutley LITTERED with these things, HUNDREDS of them Ropey Floors! Absolutlety passed it, but hey its an explore after all. More at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/landie_man/sets/72157624858004315/
  15. So it turns out if you a) ask nicely and do a fair amount of yarn spinning to the owners of places, they sometimes don't mind you having a peek behind closed doors...accompanied of course! This is one of those many manor houses that is 'empty' and not 'derelict', the original home has had a modern monstrosity added onto it to make a conference centre/office business space at some point and it was just waiting for new people to take it over. And some from the modern extension... More here http://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/sets/72157631668220320/
  16. This was more of an empty place than decayed or abandoned as such. Permission job, I know the owner well as he lets me use his many mansions for model photoshoots. I liked this place, but I do love my decay, so wasn't head over heels for this one! Went with Mookie
  17. Afternoon all, Did this place in 2012 and did enjoy the place. I know some of you know it as red dress manor. We did the usual and got in there before sunrise so went for a wander around and then sat in the dark for hour. On with some photos. Already seen some crackers on here so will shaare something a little different. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 - need to rework this one #9 #10 #11 #12 Thanks for looking in.
