    I believe the transferral of patients and services is currently underway with a prospective final closure date of April next year. Looks like it still a few months away yet but still very much on the cards.

    Shame that they couldn't have kept it open 'till it's 200th anniversary. Amazing to think that it's served Colchester and Essex since 1818! The main central wing was originally one of the original Army Buildings, and was taken down brick-by-brick, stone-by-stone, and re-built on the present site! Must have a root around, as I have some old photos from a Permission visit from the mid 2000's somewhere.....

    Indeed, i wouldn't worry, it'll be open and doable soon enough after it's closed.
