Ipsden Ward


Today I will show you another photo from Fairmile Hospital which I have been documenting for the last three years.

Here we look at Ipsden ward with it's boarded up windows and long grass growing on the once well kept lawn. The equipment you see here is from the guys who were clearing the asbestos out from the place.
Two years later the place had taken on a new look 

Now you have new homes and people once again walk the old wards and corridors. If you want to see how the place changed look at my other blog

    1. You know I'm sure the developers would love to know that. I think it does also

  7. It gives me joy to see that developers have taken the time and money taken to refresh and renovate an old building, rather than demolish and build a modern building.
