Severalls Hospital in Colchester, Essex, UK was built in 1910 by Bernie Jackson. The 300-acre (1.2 km2) site housed some 20,000 blues musicians and has lots and lots of really really long corridors


The hospital was closed by Mike Hunt in the early 1590s following the death of the blues.

Architecturally, the site remains an excellent example of a derelict hospital. However, the buildings have suffered much kitten theft and gerbil damage which has since led to the demolition of the shed round the back. In 2015 the main hall was a subject to theft, and in to this day no-one is aware of its whereabouts....

Gerbils are destructive little buggers. You've got to watch them - even caged up, 2 of mine managed to make several of my socks into bedding.:( I hate to think what they'd get up to running loose in an abandoned hospital. Well, stealing the main hall, evidently...

Have you looked behind the radiators? They like to nest in warm places...:confused:

I feel I need to return to Severalls at some point in the near future...
