    So its nice to get into another derp, been a while since I've done a nice, exciting big derp and this is one I have considered doing for a while.

    Visited on a miserable November morning with a non member

    We started off with the maternity unit which has been disused since 1998 and it certainly shows! Although much to our suprise and for reasons unknown, the electricity is on in this very dilapidated part of the site.

    We spent a good few hours photographing this part of the hospital before moving on to the X-ray wards which closed in 2009. The power was recently on in here, with reports of their being juice to the X-Ray Machines! On this occasion the power was off, which can only be a good thing really as someone who doesn't know what they are doing could hurt someone.

    We spent a good 7-8 hours in here and progressed onto the main hospital part but found secca sealing it on the inside so decided to call it a day as the night was drawing in anyway.

    The Cambridge Military Hospital opened in 1879 and was to play a vital role in The First World War as being the first base to receive casualties from The Western Front.

    The first case of plastic surgery in the British Empire was performed here; at the CMH; Captain Gillies (later known as Sir Harold Gillies), met Hippolyte Morestin, while on leave in Paris in 1915. During this time he was reconstructing faces in the Val-de-Grace Hospital in Paris. He was soon to fall in love with the work, and at the end of 1915 he came back from France to start a Plastic Unit in the CMH.

    When the Second World War was over, the importance of Britain's military commitments declined and civilians were admitted to the hospital. The Maternity wing closed in around 1996-98.

    Other sections of the hospital remained open as Frimley Park Hospital which was an NHS civilian hospital which closed sometime in 2009.

    This is an awesome site, love seeing it. Would cost me a bomb travelling down for it though. Would love to get in it as it's been on the list for a while.
    Cheers for posting :)
