Rauceby Hospital, originally called Kesteven County Asylum, is a now-defunct mental institution in the parish of Quarrington, Lincolnshire. Building work was commenced in 1897, the facility was completed and opened in 1902. After changing hands and names several times the main hospital building was closed in 1998 and abandoned for several years. From 2004 parts of the site underwent redevelopment to convert it into private housing.
On with a few pics....

In the summer of 2012 in the village of Sapernyi is where a movie based on the novel "Stalingrad" was filmed with a budget of $30 million. The shooting ended and the area was empty and opened to visitors for 500 rubles each, without climbing through the fighting positions, and passing directly through the gates. The set is built on the ruins of the Leningrad distillery. Soviet troops fighting for the defense of the city of Stalingrad began July 17, 1942. On February 2, 1943 the German units were stopped at Stalingrad.
Thanks hauptmann for translation.

"This children's hospital in Berlin-Weißensee was opened in 1911, and closed 1992. It was the first communal childen's hospital in Prussia, and in its early years, until 1920, it had its own cow stables for producing high quality milk for babies in need of breast milk substitute, and also for "milk therapy" for older children.
Since 2005 the complex is privately owned, and an investor is/was supposedly going to build a center for cancer research there. However, the old hospital remains abandoned and is falling further apart each day."

FILE - This April 15, 2011 file photo shows singer Lauryn Hill performing during the 12th Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif. - blah blah blah...
Had a Flash exe message embedded into it. Fortunately, it didn't work. Whether it was a Trojan attempt from a hacker or a naive attempt to be trendy, to the former OP "SayDeey" don't... I've already contacted the caretakers here to record the attempt.
To the folks in the community who immediately pointed out the post - thank you! this is once again proof positive that the members of this community work well together.

“Nature was reclaiming the spaces,” she said. “You would see an entire room filled with a carpet of moss. Then there was vandalism, people gutting the buildings for wiring and other metal, anything they could take. Then there were squatters and taggers. Then paintballers, who put their own marks on the places. I began to see that these hotels were taking on new life.”
Using a strategy of “rephotography” advanced by the photographer Mark Klett, who recreated iconic scenes of the American West, Ms. Scheinfeld started revisiting scenes from Catskills postcards and other photographs, then wandering wherever her eye took her. The results are portraits of destruction as well as rebirth, now numbering almost 100 photographs, which she hopes to publish as a book.
“I didn’t want to make the pictures all about decay,” she said. “I see beauty and growth in the pictures as well. The decay is linked to a cycle of regeneration. There’s something still there, even if people think it’s washed away.”

As the world moves away from the Industrial Age and deeper into the Information Age, the relics of our former industries can been seen aging and abandoned. Often, older industrial buildings and sites are so polluted with the materials once used or made there that the locations can’t be used for much else. Since they can’t be used, they simply sit and gather the layers of time that make them fascinating until they are demolished, repurposed, or completely forgotten about. These abandoned factories, mills and mines have served their useful lives and now stand silent.

As Newcastle grew, part of the tunnel was used for sewerage and the area around Central Motorway was bricked up.
Having been on a couple of the public tours of the lower half, kindly organised by the Ouseburn Trust, I have long been keen to explore the 'inaccessible' North-West end of the tunnel. After over a year of trying I am glad to have finally been able to explore this piece of local history. Thanks to CommunistCat and Pigeon for tip-offs both direct and indirect.
Now, on with the pictures. These are from two trips, both with CommunistCat but with TheStig joining us for the revisit where we brought some light-painting toys.
