Italy Colonia IL / Crying Baby Hospital - visited September 2014

Recommended Posts

Evening all,

First Italy report from me, as you know I don't process quickly so I have quite a lot of backlog to get through plus another trip next week to contend with so its a busy time.

So off the flight in the later afternoon and this was our sleeping place / first morning explore.

This abandoned place was built at the end of World War II by a religious order and used to house hundreds of children to enjoy their summertime and enjoy the activities and healthy, mountainous environment. This was closed down in the 1970s.

It was fairly trashed but some nice photogenic bits which are well known on the Italian side of exploring. Light was a little dark as it was raining first thing but we made the most of it.

This place is going to be renovated shortly as two surveyors turned up mid morning looking for a lost laser guide and told us that the place is being developed into apartments.

On with the photos

      Hey everyone, so I'm pretty sure everyone's heard of this place so i dont really need to explain much about it, but if you haven't, below is a brief history of Denbigh Mental Asylum.
       
      Grade 2 Listed building.
      Built work started in 1844
      Building work completed in 1848
       
      Built to house up to 200 patients with psychiatric illnesses. In the early 1900's it housed 1537 patients (Approx).
      The hospital had its own farm and gas works.
      Planned for closure by Enoch Powellin the 1960's, however it only began closing in sections between 1991-1995.

       
      Nurses Quarters:

       
       

       
      This is genuinely one of the best condition buildings that i have ever explored.

       
       

       
      Most of the lower floor windows were covered in either ivy or thick vines, so it got quite dark in some sections of the building.

       
      Now for the hospital itself, my personal favorite photos:
