Here's a typical scene from the now demolished Hellingly Asylum, sad to see it go, but I guess there has to be progress.
Another corridor in the now demolished mental asylum. I'm having trouble being creative with my writing at the moment, lots on my mind and lots to do, it seems to be sapping my thought process hence the lack of 'wordy-ness' recently!
