    I am thinking of going to Cane Hill Hospital very soon, has anyone been there lately than can confirm it is still standing and worth a look?
    I have done some research and know there were 2 main buildings and that one was demolished in 2013 but is the other still there?
    Ive even Google Earthed it but that is a bit out of date so still unsure.
    I don't fancy an hours drive to find it has be demolished lol
    Can any one help help me?

    It was demolished in 2008 mate. It's currently a building site. The chapel is still there but that's about it!

    I have looked on Google Earth from 11 months ago and one main building is still standing.

    Admin was still there but was burnt down a few years ago and is now nothing but a shell. The tower was left over too but not easily accessible. There was also a secure unit that closed after the main hospital but again you're too late, it's all being redeveloped now.

    I'd concentrate on finding new places rather than worrying about those from years ago.

    Talking of that, I have been looking at the site on earth, there seems to possible be some kind of filling in of 4 holes in the google earth photo, to the eft & arrowed.
    I just wondered if anyone knows anything about the spots I have arrowed in shot at the link below, I notice in that shot that the tractor or something drove around the top 2 marks as opposed to driving straight through or over them, anyone any idea if there were air shafts to some undergroud structures of any kind?
    thanks

    Nothing of note. But you do realise this: http://www.subterraneanhistory.co.uk/2008/10/coulsdon-deep-shelter-surrey.html is litterally at the bottom of the hill by admin?
