Little did I realise that I'd be back at West Park a week later.

Freelance writer Rhodri was interested in urban exploration and asked if he could come along on a trip. The piece was being pitched to the The Independent and they sent along one of their photographers Ben.

The day was a success as we retrod our original route (sans Water Tower), stopping for photo opportunities in the wards, tunnels, main hall and the padded cell. Emerging from the cool and damp building, we sat in the blazing sunlight at a local pub and discussed the forthcoming feature. It was decided that the location would not be mentioned and West Park's anonymity would be guanteed.
