Yep done a few reports on 28 days and urbex forum, few sketchy moments underground last year too (search bunker, warrington)
Might get the old head torch out again once the weather calms down a bit

I used to live near the place (2005-2008 off and on), by then it was being seriously re-developed. Hence a certain band from Menston penning the lyric "too late, there's a housing estate - it's called Highroyds". ;)

my mrs got a guided tour round St John's Hospital near Lincoln, former assylum

they are gradually developing the building into flats but lots of areas are still original and patrolled by security staff.

her and a mate got caught trying to climb through a window, security guard felt so bad for scaring the living daylights out of them (creepy old building, struggle through window to find a man stood there ) that he gave them a quick tour.

Lived in the grounds of this place for a few months around 96. It was closed down then.

Think it's gone now, went exploring in there many times, the weirdest thing was it had its own reservoir actually under part of the hospital the very still water in the light of just a head trch was quite sinister.
