Figured this was the most apt forum to pop this in. If the mode disagree please move it to the most apt forum.

If you are unaware of this place it is where Harold Shipman first went into General Practice and the telegraph's investigations stated he also started his murdering ways here.

I first visited back in October of last year and one more time early this year - both times failing to gain entry.

So I re-visited recently and this time managed to get in. It is completely stripped and trashed and not hugely photogenic. I only really bothered taking some pics due the notoriety of the place.

I'll start with externals front and back:







OK Lets head inside. Was surprised to see some murals in the main waiting area:













This is what it looked like on opening day:



Thanks for looking.

Looks very photogenic to me, some good angles and selective lighting, you could have a field day in there.

Nice report BTW, some nice looking features still in tact

I love these shots. Especially that radiator - I imagine it falling off with a massive 'CLANG' and scaring someone exploring on the other side of the building
