Severalls Hospital, Colchester

I visited Severalls just under a year ago and it was thought at that time that demolition/conversion was likely to happen any given day. But then this is Severalls, it’s been due to be knocked down for about the last 5 years. Today it still stands as it did a year ago and it’s likely it won’t be sold off for a few years yet. The biggest Asylum I’ve visited, it would take days to cover the whole site and I think you’d get lost in the vast corridors as a result!
