Away Day to the Infirmary of Derelict Rooms

DSCF9441I do like a trip out and this place was too big an opportunity to miss. I won’t bore you with the history (can’t be bothered to research it!) just know, it’s huge, and it’s incredible how much stuff has been left here. I had to go to the roof of one of the buildings to see this piece by Tekonta Secta. I don’t do heights and was in need of medical attention by the time I’d done.DSCF9434Nice piece by Zero.DSCF9442Corpse local to this area has definitely made this place his playground, quite fitting really. DSCF9351Security is not what it was, that owl’s not fooling anybody.DSCF9455 A bit late for that I think.DSCF9383Be afraid, be very afraid. The ghosts of many an urbexer can frequently be seen, wandering the corridors aimlessly, still looking for a way out.DSCF9425Another rooftop, not as high as the first with a glorious Tekonta Secta x Color Art collab.DSCF9360The chapel, with a commemorative piece to the pigeons who gave their all to give areas of this place that distinctive odour of decay.DSCF9367The kitchens and their amazing disappearing appliances. ( On a second trip, most of these had gone.)

DSCF9595Should you ever wake up to this sight, your day is not going well.

DSCF0685Grim reminder of what we come down to in the end. DSCF9578Tools of the trade, I found these shocking on many levels, not least because they were still there and appeared to be in full working order, although on my second visit, they had been effectively disabled.DSCF9600

(I’ll get my coat…)DSCF9619Heading for the train station this handsome fellow was lurking in the bushes, Angry Face, awesome end to the day.

Thanks to those who took me around and made sure I got home in one piece, much appreciated 😀

      The tanks were taken by metal thieves, which was quite a feat given that they were huge and several storeys up! As for SRDH, I did a blog post at new year where I commented that there was a vicious spate of dogging certain artists work happening at that time. One particular writer took exception to my comments and had a rant about me on his Facebook wall. The majority of what he said was just wrong ... that I own a DSLR and think that makes me a photographer - I don't own a dslr. ...that I think I'm a graffiti expert - couldn't be further from the truth...and that I only photgraph certain peoples work - just plain wrong! He started this tirade by calling me a Self Righteous Dick Head, I thought it had a ring to it so I've been aka SRDH ever since. Hope that answers your questions. :)
