Condition: Deteriorating

On Saturday I drove to the Wairarapa (as opposed to taking the train) for the first time in ages and because I wasn't in any hurry, I was able to stop and do something I've wanted to do for years...

Hop the fence and have a look around the old Greytown Hospital. It's been closed for as long as I can remember, my sister was born there in 1990 and this entry on the Wairarapa in Te Ara: The Encylopaedia of New Zealand says it closed in the 1990s, but I can't find exactly which year. There are some photos of it in its glory days, including one of a nurse standing outside it in the snow. Snow! In Greytown! For now it's just sitting abandoned.

It seems such a waste.
