St Peter’s Mortuary

Visiting this site once before but with a lack of camera equipment, the opportunity arrose to visit again on the off chance so took the camera along with me.

Unfortunately, not only has this location been done to death by other explorers, but it would now seam anything worth seeing has been well and truely trashed.

On the upside it was a good opportunity to crack out one of my other camera lenses for a change too.

Onto the history and some pictures anyway…

St. Peter’s Hospital was initially built to house the casualties of the Second World War. The mortuary was built in the 1940s, but after much redevelopment it was decided that the site was too small to cope with the increase of bodies. So, in April 2009 the mortuary closed and moved to the new building which is now central to the main hospital.
