New Life (by jamescharlick)
This military hospital dates back to 1879, built on a hill since the theory at the time was that a fresh breeze would blow away infection. Eventually closing in 1996, many reasons were given for the closure, including maintenance costs, efficiency, and asbestos.
I rolled up at first light before making a less than stealthy approach through underground I could barely see and eventually finding that the handy hole in the fence I was expecting to make an easy entrance had been well and truly fixed. Climbing a 6 ft fence topped with multiple lines of barbed wire at 6 in the morning isn’t exactly the perfect way to wake yourself up, but after a wobbly ascent I was over and in.
Once I’d finished the maternity ward the CBA hit and I decided I’d had enough of peeling paint in otherwise empty rooms and skipped the main building. Heading instead for the morgue I found it firmly screwed shut and instead had the unenviable task of climbing that bloody fence again. Still, at least I made it back to the B&B in time for breakfast!
