There is a little more history on my first report from CHM in February 2013. Briefly the Main CMH hospital building was built in 1879 and featured heavily during the first world war in dealing with front line casualties. The hospital is also famous for being the place where plastic surgery was first performed in the British Empire. The are we visited this trip was the LMM Annex which later became the maternity wing of the hospital. This section opened slightly later in 1898 and changed its name and purpose in 1958 when it became the maternity hospital. Both parts of the building closed in 1996 and lay abandoned in an ever worsening state of dereliction.
With power still on in some parts, the sheer amount of peeling paint and the cool ‘bleeding doors’ the maternity hospital at CMH never disappoints! Joined on this trip by Mr Andy K of Behind Closed Doors Urban Exploration and the Mule! I was really glad to finally get back to this place after my first trip there in February. The main building on the site still seems to elude me but I hope to manage that someday in the future. For now though I was certainly not disappointed to have another wonder around the wards, corridors and theatre rooms of the LMM Hospital :). Thanks to Mr K for assisting with the powering of additional lights which made for some illuminating photos :D. The ‘bleeding doors’ still always impress me and despite being quite difficult to photograph because of the double side lighting they are worth the effort 🙂
