This was my first ever youtube video way back in 2008.
Crazy seeing how far technology has come. I was using fairly high end camera and video software but by today standards it looks like I filmed it using a potato.
I remember trying to read the plaque through the view finder. Fair to say first and last time I did that, very hard to read that way.
I wonder what happened to the plaque? Have a feeling it was crushed when the ward was demolished.
Was a great ward to explore
*Was the toilet paper ward. LOL some kids would have had some fun doing that. In light of the Covid 19 Toilet Paper Hording fiasco current, what a bloody waste of precious toilet paper. I currently have no toilet paper at home, wish I could have borrowed a few rolls of that before it was thrown throughout the ward. *
You can tell I was a little green with Willow Court info back then.
I was behind Alonnah/IT building holding the video camera through a metal gate trying to get a view of Ward C, which at that time was inaccessible.
The airing yard
Was not Ward D, it was the airng yard that links Alonnah, IT and Ward C.
Well what a creepy Ward. It was pitch black in there even during the day.
The same as Ward G.
The RDH FILES
Love the Rob Zombie song at the credits. I forgot about that.
I miss the Royal Derwent Wards as we used to call it.
