Here are some photos I discovered I hadn’t sorted on a revisit to this animal research facility. Another one sadly since bulldozed.
This was a very interesting place. The main lab area was claustrophobic and secretive. Frosted glass blocks to stop prying eyes seeing the experiments going on inside.
I’ve included here a couple of pieces of research work done here, including submerging dogs into icey water to see how long they lasted and stopping dogs hearts and seeing if they could use a mechanical external heart. All interesting but somewhat gruesome reading. There is also a resident monkey who had a tattoo put on his head. This was a picture taken by animal rights protesters who invaded the joint at one point. This place had a lot of atmosphere.
Then there were the wierd rooms filled with random stuff, some musem stuff and then a large collection of personal belongings, it was a bizarre find in a place like this.
Then there is the old manor house. This was again rather contrasting to the whole purpose of the place.
I really enjoyed exploring this place and am sad that it is gone.
