    Magnificent photos guys, you make the place look elegant no matter what condition it's in!

    Well done! I like anything military and that tower looks worthy of a mooch

  12. The Hospital That Time Forgot: Aug 2017

    Why thank you sir! Erm, some of the inside shots were on P mode as I was getting a bit frustrated getting the look right. Yes, shot in raw, saved in jpg. I was feeling a bit sorry for my friend as I snapped off 300 shots in those 5 hours. The only thing she heard was "ooh, I don't like the look of that, just one more" lol
  13. I just love this place! Yes, it's a bit wrecked but still a great explore. Thanks to the patience of the other half of the Funky Muffin crew (my urbex pal) I was able to spend 5 hours of endlessly adjusting my camera for that "perfect shot". Also, a big thanks to the lovely fella who gave me the confidence to go out and shoot in manual (and raw) In a nutshell: Berrywood Asylum opened in 1876. During WW1 the hospital was commandeered by the military for use and became the Duston War hospital. Following WW2 the name changed to St Crispin. In the 1970’s part of the hospital was renamed the Princess Marina hospital and developed for mental handicap services. St Crispin closed in 1995. The new Berrywood mental hospital is a mile down the road from this site. Warning: I love doors and peeling paint.
