We had a great time at The old morgue and we cant wait to go back and photograph the old petrol station next door.
My heart almost leaped out of my chest when i opened this door and a huge metallic “Clunk” vibrated through my body, the door swung open as if it had been waiting for this release for a long time, it has an intensely musky smell to it which was almost overpowering.
Now for the creepy bits.
this is the lower section of the building and is without a doubt where the body’s would have been kept, we stood in this historic room and mapped out where we thought everything would be. we believe that the morgue draws would have started where the nail is in the second photo and gone along to the other side of the room.
The third picture is and example of what the draws may have looked like.
after that it was taken on by a building developer who somewhere along the line ran out of either motivation or cash (probably both) and the building fell into disrepair.
Originally built as a textile factory it was then converted to a morgue, and then a winery and Restaurant by some pretty eccentric people who carried on the morgues vibe by displaying coffins, skeletons and many other macabre and whimsical eye catchers.

This is the only shot i could get of the inside of the house. it doesn’t look like anyone has lived there in years, but every night the lights turn on as soon as it gets dark. Allot of people say its haunted, describing a shadow figure of a man in the front room. every time we’d walk past at night we would try not to look encase out eyes found something we didn’t want to see but our curiosity would always get the better of us. and as we stood peering into the window of this house a certain fear resonated from the idea of a haunted house, we’d never experienced a place with a ghostly back story before. But when we looked into the bedroom we saw something that put all the stories to rest. a thin mattress laid on the ground with a sleeping bag on top, so in the end it was just a squatter taking advantage of the electricity that for some reason is still connected.
This Ute has been here so long that a tree is growing through it. Another prime example of nature taking it all back.
