    Dropped in here early one morning last month with 2 non-members (AFAIK) :p. Very enjoyable explore gaining access and successfully manoeuvring around the security detail who patrolled with some regularity on that day.

    Cambridge Military Hospital was built in 1879 and closed in 1996 due to the cost of maintaining the old building and the discovery of a @£$^&ton of asbestos in the walls. Pioneering plastic surgery techniques were performed and developed here on soldiers brought back from the Western Front during WW1.

    Powered up the x-ray and tested it on some patient docs.

    The kitchen area had a collapsed roof and was chick full of pigeons. >_<

    Been there a few times and never saw the x-ray thing, never mind any electricity anywhere. I guess something has closed recently.

    Power still on throughout the Maternity Ward on the East side and the 'x-ray section' on the West. Had to switch on the at the mains for the scanners though if I remember correctly... although the dark room and lights were already active. Flipped a fuse for the nurses call alarm by accident in Maternity... :rolleyes: Not pro.

    Not obviously so, didn't chance at entry as guard was sat up the hill overlooking it for the last few hours there. Rather get out of there unseen. :)
