For a bit of History and more photos from my first visit to West Park in 2010 check out this post!
Regretfully I never saw enough of West Park while it was still around. Most of the site has now been renovated into new housing and the few remaining buildings are mainly stripped. This little gem however still remains. It seems to have become somewhat of a popular explore these day. I thought it had only recently been discovered however I have since found reports dating back as far as 2008. I arrived with Sam the Mule in tow just as it was getting dark so all the photos were shot with a flash and bounce card (not my preferred method). I’d have liked to have spent longer here and had a bit of a look around during the day but this was the third spot of what turned out to be an epic day of exploring. I ticked of 3 sites which were high on my to do list including 2 morgues! not bad for a days work!
This building was originally built to function as a morgue but later became the Histopathology department where blood and brain samples were collected from deceased patients I can only assume for later examination. Surprisingly some samples were still left and available to photograph.
If you’ve made it this far… thanks for reading / checking out the pictures. Leave me a comment below or hit the like button to let me know you’ve enjoyed the shots and to encourage me to keep posting more 🙂
Limited Edition and Canvas prints, as well as regular prints, are available for all of the images above just ask me about prices.
Right now I’m studyng for my Histology exam and so much want to examine all that samples ;D Great job!
Thanks for the comment 🙂 Bet there would be some interesting things in the results. I’m pretty sure all the samples are from ex Patients!
All the best PM
do you mean wouldn’t?? haha and I’ll try I believe there’s two areas to visit in Epsom, and it’s not far at all for me I know there’s that one god know how I’m gonna find it but also from what I’ve found there’s Horton hospital too, I don’t know if they are one and the same or not
I certainly did mean wouldn’t 🙂 damn typos 🙂 how did you get on?
ah okay thanks 🙂 and stopped and searched? that doesn’t sound good :/ was thinking of maybe venturing out there tomorrow :/
I certainly would deter you from trying, hopefully its not too far of a trip for you. Try and have a backup plan just incase its been sealed and best of luck… let me know how you get on. I’d be interested to know what its like now 🙂
I’d like to say your work is brilliant, I was just wondering if during this last trip if you might’ve had the same issues as last time with almost getting escorted of??
Thanks Sylwia 🙂
This visit did not find us meeting any security. The majority of the buildings have been demolished or converted now there’s only a couple of bits left. I’m not sure how much will be left inside this place or if the building is even still standing. It was a few months ago. Since this trip I have known friends be stopped and searched by police. We might have just been lucky with the weather being deep in snow 🙂
I was just wondering If you was able to give me directions on how to get here. I also just wanted to comment on your work and I think it is absolutely breath taking.
Hi Paige, Thanks for your comment glad you like the photos 🙂 I’m afraid I don’t give out location information sorry. Theres always google though its not the hardest place to find 🙂 best of luck
