Moving on, at least the rain has stopped now. Hereís the end of another ward.

There are only so many witty comments one can write about ward ends. And there hasnít even been any vandalism to comment on here.

This is the end of the Vanbrugh/Vincent ward, and to the right is No. 4 Garden, and the unphotographable Zachary/Unwin ward. An odd name, given that another Zachary ward is perched on top of York further back around the path.

A rather nasty joke methinks: further confusing the bewildered patients.


2009: This is another of the few pictures from this exploration I actually like. Again, it conjures up the impression of massive Victorian buildings towering over the observer, and illustrates the dominance of the buildings.

Male Ward "F" became one of the most photographed wards in the hospital after a fire tore through the day rooms and took out the roof. Up until that point, it had mostly been ignored.
