    History
    The Cambridge Military Hospital, built by Messrs Martin Wells and Co. of Aldershot, was located at Stanhope Lines. It was named after Prince George, Duke of Cambridge and opened on 18 July 1879. In the First World War,the Cambridge Hospital was the first base hospital to receive casualties directly from the Western Front. The Cambridge Hospital was also the first place where plastic surgery was performed in the BritishEmpire. After the Second World War, with the decline in importance of Britain's military commitments, civilians were admitted to the hospital. It pioneered the supply of portable operating theatres and supplies for frontline duties. The hospital also contained the Army Chest Unit. It was closed on 2 February 1996 due to the high cost of running the old building as well as the discovery of asbestos in the walls.

    The visit
    An early morning explore in which JdotN15, a non member and I arrived in darkness and headed towards our access point. Whilst making our way there, which felt like 3 miles of walking through a load of thorns and bushes upon bushes, we finally got into the site and within about 10 minutes we were in. After spending a good couple hours in one of the buildings we decided to chance our luck and see if we could make it out and into another building without running into security doing their patrols. Seeing the video of them posted recently I wasn't too keen on running into them! But as it turned out, we made it into the second building. After spending another few hours in there and tripping 2 alarms we decided to leave. Thankfully we found a different exit to our entrance point but as we were just getting out I noticed security coming straight for us. After an attempt to keep us in the hospital with them closing the gate so we couldn't leave, we just decided to open it for ourselves and left.

    Nice pics! We very nearly got collared by secca here but managed to slip away undetected. It seems like someone has given the place a bit of a tidy up since we went. See my pic below:
