CRIMINAL ASYLUM -
Here is another abandoned building, but one with a difference. This building is a perfectly preserved criminal asylum in South Australia.
Z Ward, a former hospital for the “criminally insane,” rests in the tranquil South Australian suburb of Glenside. Though long abandoned, this building remains perfectly intact and free from vandalism thanks to a protective wall with a deceptive height.
Initially, the building was actually named L Ward, but this was swiftly changed once the nickname of “Hell Ward” developed. The building had the capacity to hold 40 patients at a time and often did so before it closed in 1973.
Since the closure of Z Ward, the building has remained mostly vacant other than acting as a storage facility or hosting the odd arts event. The future of Z Ward remains uncertain, though it is rumored that it will be converted into office space soon.
Clancy's comment: Mm ... Another dastardly place, eh?
