    The last building on the Hellingly hospital estate to my knowledge that is un-explored, a chance drive by with my daughter and a quick snoop around and we were in, something id not managed to do since its closer in 2006.


    We had a nervy look around until we found a room full of files and records, from then on we spent the next hour reading through some of them, which was great as in all the times i visited the main hospital we never came across documents like we found in Bowhill.

    Nice work. I seem to recall there was anyother villa slightly further down The Drive (before the main hospital) that the demolition also missed. Do you know if that's still there?

    Cheers, wevs yeah these buildings are easily overlooked, been guilty of that myself.
    Clebby it's still there mate, I guess it was no good to the developers being on the other side of the road.

    Nice work mate. That's good actually. I think most of us were under the impression that there was nothing left here, and then all the paperwork turns up !
