NHS Hospital

I visited this place twice last week, the 2nd time with more people and to hopefully find the morgue, which was in a separate building we still couldn't find a way into. It's been closed I think since 1996, and surprisingly was bought shortly after by Tescos, who have yet to do anything with it. The main corridor has been damaged by fire, and probably as a result, Tescos have spent 1m in the last year on security and boarding, which appears to have been a colossal waste of resources. Anyway, on to the photos:

The front of the building. The only part of the sign that's in any way true is the word 'static'. The entire ~8hrs we were in there over both days, they sat in their van at the front listening to music.

A hall/skatepark in out-patients:
