Hi all i think we may have been a bit late to view this as its now very trashed we also had kids chucking slates of the roof at us a we walked round but its still a good wander

The history

The site has a existing building footprint of 55,576 sq ft complete with its hydrotherapy pool, sensory room and hall. built as part of a 4m revamp in 1994. The pool is the only one of its kind in Southern Derbyshire. It has hoists to help lower people into the temperature-controlled water, and is ideal for keeping severely disabled people's limbs supple.

Aston Hall has a long history dating back to the early 1600s and was used as a auxillary hospital in the first World War. The property was sold to Nottingham Corporation in 1924 and has served the community as a specialist hospital for many years.
Plans to close Aston Hall Hospital, in Aston on Trent, which cared for people with learning disabilities, were announced in 1998 amid fierce opposition from locals who wanted a village community to care for the 58 patients already on the site.

As far as I can tell the site closed sometime in 2006 and has since become target somewhat by local youths and people stealing scrap metals.

now for the pics

I saw a vid on you tube of a group who met up at sevs just to smash it up.. they filmed themselves as they went along..
Called themselves Urban Smashers and say they are just helping the Demo team along the way!
I wanted to smash their heads in!
Tossers!

What a shame. It sounded like it was a useful site before it got trashed and 4m down the drain.
