    Moreton-in-Marsh Cottage Hopsital, Gloucestershire.

    Visited with huey on a rather grizzly January afternoon. Some history:

    Initially this looked to be a promising site, with Victorian doors and wood paneling visible through the windows which is always the hallmark of quality. However upon entry it was evident that all was not as it seemed and that this was in fact part of a film set. Indeed the entire hospital appears to be used as storage for props and other filming-related crap, though fortunately a few items of medical paraphernalia remain, most notably the operating theatre which is always nice to see. In general though it is a fairly stripped, modern and uninspiring site and only really worth a nosey if you're in the area.

    I feel obliged to point out that the site is heavily belled up, and whilst we weren't caught we only spent a tentative twenty minutes or so wandering around with the alarms ringing before we felt (or at least huey felt :gay) we were pushing our luck. As such my photos are utterly gash and I'm not sure I'll be returning in a hurry. However there's a few areas we didn't see (namely the laundry, kitchens and boiler house) and who knows, there could be an epic stash of Victoriana in the loft, so perhaps there is still hope!

    Some pictures:

    The whole place is littered with weird props:

    Conservatory full of hospital tat:

    Note the pub sign(!)

    This door was pretty much the only original feature left in the place:

    Finally, this chapel set-up looked interesting through the windows but is again entirely fake. Still interesting I suppose, but in a different way.

    By no means the best place I've ever seen, not by a long shot, but always good to see somewhere new. Nice to document a historic site as well, and hopefully the locals and former workers might appreciate seeing some pictures of this much-loved cottage hospital. :thumb
