Inside The Abandoned Morgue Of A Psychiatric Hospital That’s Been Locked For 40 Years

There are some extremely creepy places in this world. Places that have been left abandoned for decades or even places that hold mysteries that have yet to be solved.  That is exactly how this creepy place in York, UK has been left. Some thought it was an abandoned psychiatric hospital, but it’s still in used to this day. But one wing of the hospital has been abandoned for over 40 years and this photographer decided to take a look.

The hospital revealed its hidden rooms and treasures which have remained untouched for more than 40 years after it was set up as Quaker hospital in the 18th century.
Hidden beneath The Retreat lies a morgue which has been under lock and key since the 1960s as well as cupboards, swathed in dust, containing finely preserved treasures such as a cannon ball and monkey skull, which have been accumulated in the last 400 years of the hospital.

These images are disturbing to say the least. Take a look below at this abandoned psychiatric hospital.

Some items don’t really have a purpose, especially 40 years later.

I find it very interesting that this hospital is still in use today, but the basement has been left untouched for decades. It makes you wonder why? Did something terrible happen down there? Do they just not need the space? Who knows! But at this point in time, it definitely provides you with a lot of amazing pictures and piques your interest.
