Abandoned UK morgue

I met up with BauhausGirl from Flickr when I was over in the UK last month, and she took me to a couple of places, including an abandoned morgue.  The hospital that the morgue is attached to is still functional.

The first time she ever got in to the morgue, she had to squeeze through narrow metal bars over a window frame of broken glass.  She cut herself up so badly that when her husband saw her afterwards he thought someone had attacked her with a knife.  She’s crazy!  In a good way.

When she took me there, someone had removed the bars from the window frame and there was no glass, making entry easy and painless.

The morgue is small and has a little chapel and the overwhelming smell of something that I can only describe as a combination of some potent chemical mixed with mothballs…
