Philip Woolway ARPS - Photography with a passion for capturing the unusual, the challenging and the aesthetically pleasing. The Haslar Heritage Group with permission of Our Enterprise Haslar Ltd enlisted Philip to undertake a photographic record of Haslar during 2013/14 in order to record the Hospital prior to the forthcoming transition of the site.

The hospital has been closed for some 5 years, the grounds have been cared for but time is taking a toll on internal areas where paint is peeling and dust is gathering. Some equipment remains but is sadly unacceptable to other medical services and hospitals due to having been previously used – yet another sign of this Health and Safety world. Other items of fixed machinery is long out of date and all the same adds to the run-down of Haslar’s noble history.

The whole collection will add to the history file of Haslar and our thanks to Philip for his work and patience.
