The photos may be difficult to get... A guy on the Jinx board reports that the hospital is now a big hole in the ground. Boo.... I'll take a ride out and see if any of the other areas of the site are still standing, photos may follow. The lesson here might be to record these things and get a good lo...

As well as studying there I did part-time IT support, so I had (reasonable) justi...
