Hellingly Asylum – Bricks and Mortar

The weather had been inclement throughout the explore and as we exited the main complex of the asylum it started to rain adding to our mood. The destruction of the hall had almost completed and we both knew that within the next week destruction would be complete. Both of us got on with our work [...]

Hellingly Asylum – Upturned

Another bath I'm afraid - I took this one on the previous visit but from another angle - HERE. Again I have used focal point from OnOne to blur the windows and wall to the right. I have little more to say about this image at the moment - its late and I am feeling [...]

Hellingly Asylum – Run Like Hell

This is quite literally the end of Hellingly - the floor finishes here. As the diggers move in I have no doubt that this is now rubble. I'm going back tomorrow for what will most likely be the last time. I think I have documented the asylum almost enough and have pretty much all of [...]
