    Visited with KM Punk, and the Shepshed Diamond Back,
    thanks for a fun day out.

    History

    In the peaceful rural village of Nocton, Lincolnshire stands a hidden gem,
    the historic and beautiful ruins of Nocton Hall.
    This grade two listed building dates back to around 1530 and served as a
    convalescence home for wounded American officers during the first world war once acquired
    by the air ministry in 1940 and transformed into a RAF Hospital.

    Up until 1943 the Hall was used as a 'clearing station', not long after 1943 Nocton Hall was chose
    to be the home for the United States Army after the Americans took control over Nocton and
    its grounds for the second time.
    And so it became the Army's seventh general hospital, and the hall used as an 'Officers Club'.


    In this time Nocton served civilian's and forces personnel till the military decided to close Nocton Hall
    in 1983.
    The RAF decided in 1984 to lease Nocton to the US Army and so this one quiet building and grounds
    turned into a 740 bed hospital.

    Sadly in the early hours on the 24th October 2004 a fire engulfed Nocton Hall, and so has left
    this historic building as the ruins it is today, and at the mercy of nature reclaiming it back
    as its own.

    Thanks for looking : )

    Good photos. When you slipped into Nocton Hall you should have gone left under the small opening and you would be amazed at the underground bunkers. It's very dark but with a torch you would be amazed. Try it out on your next visit
