Hellingly Hospital - The East Sussex Mental Institution.
Hellingly, a Victorian hospital on a grand scale. Conceived in 1897, with landscaped surroundings high on a hill with therapeutic views across the countryside. An enclosed community, providing for itself...patients and staff lives exisiting in familiar corridors and buildings.
Closed down in the eary 1990's and left decaying ever since.

Admiration: (from a Yahoo message board)

"The gentle decaying bin is Hellingly hospital......it is a classic red brick Victorian asylum, on a grand scale. It is laid out along the mile long drive down to Ashen Hill like toad spawn. All the buildings face towards the sea 5 miles to the south. I think they probably look more beautiful now than they did when occupied because it is possible to romaticise them now."
