    This was the first building I explored with a camera. It was good to return.

    The hospital in Melton Mowbray started life as Hill House and was built pre 1760. In 1840 Colonel Charles Wyndham moved to the area due to his passion for fox hunting and rented Hill House. He changed the name to Wyndham Lodge in traditional hunting fashion.

    It was later purchased by William Chaplin who had the entire house rebuilt in Wartnaby stone in 1874.

    In 1920 Col Richard Dalgleish purchased Wyndham lodge as a gift to the town. In honour of those who had fallen during the great war it became known as Melton & District War Memorial Hospital.

    The hospital closed in 2005 and has been left to let nature take over.

    Really impressed you cracked this one :thumb
    not seen a report for years from here
    security is very hot here. PIRs and metal sheeting on the windows make this a challenging site
    the site has been sold to developers now, soon to become houses
    excellent photos mate
