Severalls Hospital

 
Corridor! Corridor! Corridor!
I love any kind of abandoned buildings,
but what I love most is looooong corridor.
So this place is like a paradise!

ながーーーーーーい廊下がたくさんあるセヴェラルズ精神病院という廃墟。
私が廃墟で特に好きなのが長い廊下なので、
この廃墟は楽園のようでした!

from wiki
The 300-acre (120 ha) site housed some 2000 patients and was based on the "Echelon plan" - a specific arrangement of wards, offices and services within easy reach of each other by a network of interconnecting corridors. This meant that staff were able to operate around the site without the need to go outside in bad weather.
Unlike modern British hospitals, patients in Severalls were separated according to their gender. Villas were constructed around the main hospital building as accommodation blocks between 1910 and 1935.

So the long corridors turned out to be intentional!

wikiによると、「エシュロン計画」という計画の一環で、
病棟、事務室、施設など互いに行き来しやすくするため、
全ての棟が長い廊下でつながった構造になったようです。
悪天候でも医師や看護士やスタッフたちが問題なく運営を出来るようにするため、だったよう。

I have sooooo many photos of this place.
(There are some parts I couldn't visit, though!)
So please bear with me!














































Good news, everybody!
This is only photo taken outside as I tried to hide from security partol/警備員に見つからないように移動したため、外の写真はこの1枚だけです。

The most famous part of this place is supposed to be morgue,
which either I missed or didn't even try to find as I didn't know then!
This place is too huge to be explored only one day.
Also, there is security so I don't think you can stay long as you want!

この廃墟で有名なのは死体安置所だそうです。
訪問時、知らなかったので探しもせず、見ていないです…
一日で訪問しようと思うには無理がある程規模が大きいです。
さらに警備もあるので、好き放題訪問できるとも言いがたいですね。

I went there with my friend who had been there before.
We got in with a rope over a fence, which was so exciting.

何度か訪問したことがあるという友人と一緒に訪問しましたが、
ロープでフェンスを越えて中に入り、とても興奮しました!
