With its grimy windows and decades of evident neglect, there are few buildings in the capital as instantly bone-chilling as the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children on Hackney Road. It was opened in 1866 after a cholera outbreak and was originally known as the North-Eastern Hospital and Dispensary. Its services were relocated to the Royal London in Whitechapel in 1998 and the building has since fallen into disrepair, serving only to spook the children - and adults - visiting Hackney City Farm across the road.
