Weybridge urban explorer targets former Epsom hospital

Local Urban Photography

An urban explorer has captured these stunning images as a memento of a former mental asylum that is under demolition.  West Park Mental Asylum was a large psychiatric hospital in Epsom and opened in 1923, with facilities to cater for about 2,000 patients. At one time, it had extensive boiler houses, a mortuary, chapel, water tower, ballroom and even its own railway.  Now it is a derelict shell, with crumbling door frames, puddle-scattered floors and asbestos-riddled walls.
