Endless Corridors..

 

I've had a love of photographing corridors and other vanishing-point perspective shots for a long time now, long before I took a greater interest into the UE world, and old hospitals/asylums tend to present the best ones. Here are a few from different places over the years, feel free to post yours below too!

Thanks lads! @Andy @jones-y-gog. I'm sure you have some too? :) 

 

I've checked my photos and put together a collection of (more or less) endless corridors. :) 

Some pics are already very old and my editing from that time is ... hmm ... ;)

If corridors float your boat the best place to go was Severalls - these were the most amazing corridors I've ever seen.

The main corridor of Cambridge Military Hospital was said to be a mile long. A bit of an exaggeration maybe, more realistic estimates say its 250 meters. Whichever, its a whopping long corridor :50_open_mouth:

The corridor of the Duga complex near Chernobyl seemed endless as well

Here's one I liked at Haslar

And finally one from Beelitz that could fit the brief for doors and doorways thread....

      A little bit of history on another place I'm sure you've all seen plenty before - 

      The 300-acre (120 ha) site housed some 2000 patients and was based on the "Echelon plan" - a specific arrangement of wards, offices and services within easy reach of each other by a network of interconnecting corridors. This meant that staff were able to operate around the site without the need to go outside in bad weather. Unlike modern British hospitals, patients in Severalls were separated according to their gender. Villas were constructed around the main hospital building as accommodation blocks between 1910 and 1935. Most of the buildings are in the Queen Anne style, with few architectural embellishments, typical of the Edwardian period. The most ornate buildings are the Administration Building, Larch House and Severalls House (originally the Medical Superintendent's residence).
      Psychiatrists were free to experiment with new treatments on patients seemingly at will, using practices now considered unsuitable such as electro-convulsive therapy (ECT) and the use of frontal lobotomy.
      The hospital closed as a psychiatric hospital in the early 1990s following the closure of other psychiatric institutions. However, a small section remained open until 20 March 1997 for the treatment of elderly patients suffering from the effects of serious stroke, etc., as a temporary building for nearby Colchester General Hospital which was in the process of building an entire new building for these patients. A few of the satellite villas as of 2013 are still operational as research facilities on the edge of the site. (Copied from Wikipedia, though loads of info on the hospital to be found here too- http://severallshospital.co.uk/#/home-page/4531049539
       
      Annd the explore - 
       
      Explored again with TheVampiricSquid and a couple other explorers. After a reluctant 4am start, (cheers to thevampiricsquid for letting me crash at his, I'm not sure how I would have fared if I'd had to do that extra bit of driving in the morning!) helped by the downing of energy drinks and a stop at maccie's we finally made it over to essex to meet the others just as daylight came creeping in.
      Over the quite frankly evil fence we went, and off to the main building. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time for much other than the main building this time, yet another place far too large for just one day, looks like I'm going to have to revisit, what a shame!  Once again, I'd seen hundreds of photos, but when faced with the real thing, it was another story. The decay in this place is stunning, one of my favourite rooms being a hall with black paint bleeding down the walls, and of course, the corridors… well what can I say, words can't really do this place much justice! 
      We spent a fair few hours wandering the main building, and tried and failed to get into the water tower and the morgue, all somehow without getting busted, then, right as we were about to leave, my tripod decided to fail me and my poor wide angle hit the floor  bit of a damper on the day, but what can you do, these things happen.. >.<
      Anyway, enough rambling, and on with some photos  -

      Collections of things are nice, but any collection needs a few rules.

      Quality not Quantity
      Try and keep the pictures in a themed thread good quality examples of the theme and don't just post up 25 mediocre shots just for the sake of it.
      Diversity is Key
      Try not to post more than one photo from a location or of an particular item. Try and keep the photos different to what is already on the thread.
      Short and to the point
      Don't write massive introductions to your posts on these threads, and please don't post any more than 5 photos at a time. I'm sure you have plenty of chairs, windows, signs and street art to share in your collection, but share it in the thread over time and not all at once.

      Thanks,
      Maniac.

      Second to my love of stairs is my love of big long straight things.
      By which I mean corridors.
      Fnarrrr.
      Here are some from this year.



















      Over to you.

      The history of the Holy Cross Hospital is surreal.
      Built about 200 years ago, it has been renovated several times over the years then suddenly abandoned.
      A new hospital was built exactly in front of it.
      After a few years, they closed it too.
      Two abandoned hospitals facing each other.
      Strange life.

      History
      A former Catholic seminary and Licensed Hall of Residence of the University of Durham, covers 400 acres in the village of Ushaw Moor in the UK. It was founded in 1808 by scholars from English College, Douai, who had fled France after that college had been closed during the French Revolution. Ushaw College had been affiliated with the University of Durham since 1968. Until 2011, Ushaw was the principal Roman Catholic seminary in the north of England for the training of Catholic priests; finally closing in 2011 due to the shortage of vocations. The buildings and grounds are now occupied and maintained by the Ushaw charitable trust, and Durham University Business School is using the buildings from April 2012.
      Explore
      Visited this whilst on my Durham tour, of all the places and I pick Durham, saying that I have infact had some of the nicest explores here.
      Was a lovely day, a little chilly. Turned up, parked the car outside some other derelict farm house but didn't go in there. Traipsed across some land to get to the Seminary and found our access point, relatively easy. I had been told this place had gone downhill dramatically and they weren't wrong, but still got some OK shots. Didn't manage to get in to the chapel, that was pretty secure.
