A series of photos of Gosford Castle in Northern Ireland. One of the largest castles ever built in Ireland in the unique style of Normandic revival, which sadly has lain empty for nearly ten years now. It is slowly but surely turning into a ruin. Also, a visit to the abandoned Psych Ward in Morris plains, Greystone

Wow! Amazing posts. I used to work at Cane Hill and to see the pictures in this link is eerie. In fact I worked at a (then) newly built part of the hospital which is still functioning but I had my interview in 1985 the main, old building. Very sad and so wasteful but so much history packed into those beautiful photographs. The photographer has a great eye for shape, form and light. There is a beauty in its decay but it is still so sad. I haven't seen it or visited since I left in 1990.
