    (However I have included a few phone snaps from a couple of solo strolls around the place)

    There was a campaign to save the hospital that was started back in 2003, with 79% of residents rejecting the closure the hospital. Services have now been transferred to the upgraded Southmead hospital in Bristol.

    Since it closed in May I have had a few walks through the site, some corriders, the chapel and a few other buildings. The site now has hoarding around and 3 gates, which are closed only at night it seems. Demolition I have been told starts in about a months time. There are however small parts of the hospital that are still in operation such as pathology and the brain unit which will be retained until the end of the year at least.

    The site is being turned into houses although some parts will remain such as the Brain Injury Rehabilitation unit, the Burden Centre and the Clic Cottage. Frenchay Park House which is being used as Trust Headquarters as well as the adjacent stable block will remain but is due to be sold off separately. There is also a promise of a 60-70 bed sized community hospital being created on a 6 acre patch that has been identified.
