    Default Hellingly Hospital, East Sussex

    I had to go to Brighton yesterday and well, "when in Rome", right? First explore in ages too 'cause I've been busy with other projects.

    This place is unbelievably ruined, highly entertaining though - cool graffiti, funky floors and weird orthopedic type chairs EVERYWHERE. It's got quite a nice atmosphere to it, perfect for a future picnic I think!

    East Sussex decided to provide a new asylum after a brief period of as principal owners of the Haywards heath asylum. The construction of the new building allowed the county to leave the frequently-overcrowded old asylum to the Brighton authority and take up more extensive facilities at Hellingly.

    Designed by prominent asylum architect, George Thomas Hine, Hellingly was to be one of the most advanced county asylum designs at the time of its construction and can be seen as a smaller scale enhancement of ideas employed at the London County Council's Bexley Asylum. The site, forming part of Park Farm was located to the north-east of Hailsham a short distance from Hellingly village and railway station. The site sloped south and the northern area was bounded by woodland. A minor road was re-routed to maintain the security and privacy of the site.

    You wouldn't believe how many pigeons I had to beat up for this photo


    Sadly didn't find the body fridge, not too bothered though as I found workshops, boilers and BIG washing machines



    (No pigeons were harmed during the making of this explore, though I was ****ing tempted - the noisy b*stards)
