Along the chapel by Richard Shepherd

This is the marvelous view looking along into the chapel at this abandoned asylum, i absolutely love the colours and the shapes in this room, and the two trenches in the floor from where the pipework has been gotten to only add to it for me in this case.

    this is stunning love the central path leading up to the front

  • Yeah, service hatches have been taken up for access to the pipes, it makes for a lovely shot though.

    Whoa, awesome!!!!!! What a gorgeous view. At first i thought the trenches were for some sort of vehicle, they look kind of like a train track without the ties

  • Heh, i see what you mean. They are pipe trenches though :)

    It’s almost absurd to think you could find such a beautiful chapel in an asylum, great capture – I love the symmetry.

  • This is one of the nicest asylum chapels i have ever seen, but then again it was built in 1882 when religion was a much bigger part of life, and also religion was seen as very much a way of helping the residents of the asylum. Even as you enter the admin block which leads to this chapel you are greeted by the latin phrase “Aversos Compono Animos” which translates as “I bring relief to troubled minds”

    Yes, the pipework does add to it, but something about chapels in asylums is just so beautiful and so sad – I wish I had this place nearby so I could roam around and take pics – lucky you!!! You do a fab job, Shepy.
