    Post Little Plumbstead Hospital, Norfolk - July 2013

    This large site is comprised of several buildings which were added at various stages in the hospital's history. It was this (shown below), the largest and oldest building, that was the main focus of our attention. After scouring the structure for a way inside - in vain, we split up and started to investigate the other buildings. After quite some time with no luck I took the opportunity to rest on the grass and take some external shots of the castle-like Victorian brickwork.

    1.


    Suddenly, we were excitedly signalled over to one of the larger modern buildings on the other side of the grounds. Had a way inside finally been found? Would we get to see what was hidden away inside at least one of the buildings? Had they found the elusive swimming pool? Sadly, no. We were being called over to offer assistance (and presumably the requisite amount of mocking) to one of our party who climbed up onto a rooftop and was now unable to get back down without assistance. Not being the strongest climber myself, it was quite refreshing not to be the one in that position for a change.

    Once that fun was over, we continued our search for entry points. It seemed that the property owners really REALLY didn't want any more curious visitors as we were completely beaten and, eventually and with a great sense of frustration, we agreed to cut our losses and write the site off as a miserable failure. Then, almost back at the car we saw it - finally a way in. Somehow we had missed it despite it being something we should have spotted in the first 5 seconds there. The old adage is quite true that often you find these things only when you stop looking.

    Although extremely dark and bare inside, there were plenty of rooms and corridors to explore ...not to mention one of the better rooftops to chill out on after rushing around through attics.

    Like the look of this place...
    Give me wine, I drain the dregs and toss the empty bottle at the world.

    Handsome, witty, devastatingly charming and unstoppably immoral
