Second day got off to a slow start. I didn’t get up quite as quickly as I would have liked. I think my dodgy ankle may have caused me not to sleep too well, consequently I woke several times in the night.
First stop was Organ Monastery. After doing a recce I decided against it. I couldn’t really see a way in and the entrance is on a residential road. I headed to HH3which was close by instead.
A short drive around past lovely houses I arrived my goal. I took two attempts to find the entrance, some strength and agility was required, but I managed to get in in the end. Initially I was quite spooked by a beeping inside – I soon discovered that this was the ‘Dentists Lift’ which still had power applied. Un-nerved but resolute I soldiered on. The wing in which I entered was fairly mew, so not much decay. There were a few interesting sights though, random chairs and beds left around the place. obviously left in position by previous explorers. so I apologise if I have the same shots as you.
More wandering around ensued and tbh I wasn’t overly impressed. The ground floor did have hundreds if not thousands of x-ray negs, boxes and boxes and yet more boxes of peoples insides, then a room full of them all neatly filed. There were a couple of machines with what looked like expensive equipment left standing.
I continued to the older part of the hospital in search of decay. however as soon as I got to ‘the good bits’ I heard people upstairs, footsteps right above me. I hadn’t been too quiet with opening and closing doors so was sure that whoever it was would have heard me. Explorer, hobo or security, I didn’t hang around to find out. Time to leave.
The way out was slightly comedy with me hanging onto the drainpipe to make good the exit. I was very conscious of my ankle being slightly dodgy so didn’t want to aggravate the injury by falling awkwardly. I managed to get down in the end though only to almost walk into two women whom I had spotted cycling around earlier. They stopped for around 10 minutes nattering to each other. eventually they went on their way though and I was able to get a decent exterior shot. Several people cycled past, so I can only assume that the grounds are a good shortcut.
