The decay at Runwell Asylum is pretty epic in places. Peeling paint all over the place indicating how open to the elements its been here in the past. Now safely boarded up though keeping the majority of the rain, wind and snow out of the main building.

I was really taken by this switch, the blue popped out at me and the layers of paint , one over another give an indication of the age of the place and how often it must have been repainted and given a spruce up.
