Bloody hell what a collection that is!!!! As The Raw said, quite a few I've not even heard of let alone seen before.

Part of me thinks it's great to see these fascinating historical places have been documented properly before the vast majority got demolished or redeveloped. 

The other part of me is insanely jealous :22_stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Probably one of the best reports on hospitals/asylums I've seen for a while! 

Nice to see another person made it in to the Lawn :thumb and Rossylnee is always nice as it doesn't crop up too often. Fairfield I'd be interested in seeing inside if you have any pics as this was down the road from where I grew up. 

thats some proper history there with many now no longer standing or converted. 

I like this, a lot!

Just wish I'd been 1) a better photographer for some of the earlier ones and 2) had the money to make sure I got to all the others that have gone since 2008 and I never saw.

you've definitely gotten around a bit!


Thanks all. And what have you heard!? :? Haha.


They will all go in a book once there are no more left to visit.

And there are of course a few more on the (shameless plug) countyasylums.co.uk website :95_v:

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!
      Here are the best photos we managed to get, thanks for looking.
