Rounding the corner, this corridor would take you down by the
stores and to the kitchens. If we’d ignored the kitchens, and
continued to walk north, we’d have ended up here.
Post-fire post-ironic comment: Note burnt out, rusting fire hose.
Between here and the kitchens were The Stores, an area we hadn’t explored.
From the state of the corridor, it may have been spared the fire. If that was the
case, then the infamous teddy bear, a cuddly toy, hanging from the roof of the stores
by a perfectly tied noose may still be there.
Unfortunately I didn’t know that at the time (as I would’ve checked), and instead
we moved along the corridor and emerged at the end of the service road at the back of the hospital.
