An urban exploring couple have revealed the eerie history of a small and spine-chilling abandoned building. You can see what they found below:
Urban explorers Urbexcr (TikTok: @urbexcr) document their travels around the UK, finding abandoned buildings and looking into their history.
If I saw an eerie abandoned building on the side of the road, my last thought would be to step inside and have a look around.
While I am as baffled by Urbexcr's dedication to hunting around the country for deserted sites as I am when protagonists in horror films decide to go towards the creepy noise they've heard coming from downstairs - the pair's discoveries of buildings which appear trapped in time are very cool to see.
However, one of their latest finds is certain to infiltrate your nightmares, especially after they revealed what it used to be used for.
Noting that the building was located on the parameter of a hospital, Urbexcr explained that the tiny building is a 'little morgue'.
The post reads: "The hospital itself had been used as a scarlet fever hospital and was built in 1892.
"Unsure when this morgue was last used but from the research we've done it's been disused for at least 12 years.
"The morgue building had 3 rooms, 1 containing the fridges, 1 which had the mortuary table in and a little office which was full of tables and chairs."
The pictures posted reveal leftover lancets, gloves, a metal table, body lockers and folders of medical notes.
Despite the building's ominous appearance and morbid past use, the couple noted that they 'really enjoyed' exploring the building and that it is 'a change to what [they] normally find'.
Followers of the page shared a similar fascination with the creepy space. One said: "Thanks so much for the photographs. Quite a place! Different from what you usually show to us but very interesting."
Another joked: "The perfect location for a romantic date."
A third said: "I'd live there it's got a cooker and plenty of fridge space, beds look a little hard though."
And if the morgue wasn't spine-chilling enough, the pair have explored other abandoned buildings such as the Forster Green hospital.
Urbexcr uncovered that the site first opened in 1897 'as a sanatorium for patients with tuberculosis'.
They said: "Over the years it was open it offered a range of services including neurology, care of older people, and a child and family centre. In 1958 a lab and mortuary were added to the building.
"By 2012 all services situated at the forster green hospital were relocated to other hospitals and it closed its doors, leaving it to rot and decay."
The couple also revealed that the hospital saw a string of allegations of abuse, which added to how eerie it felt, leading to them concluding that the building 'gives a whole new meaning to creepy'.
