    Whilst I was in the area thought I pop in and have a look round again solo visit, seen it on-line and I know its been done to death but here is my take on it. I didn't realise just how big it is here so easy to get lost, lots and lots of long corridors, I couldn't believe just how trashed it has become.

    Met a couple of nice chaps on my way out.

    History

    RAF Hospital Nocton Hall was a 740-bed RAF hospital serving the predominantly RAF personnel based at the large number of RAF Stations in the area. Officially designated as No. 1 RAF Hospital Nocton Hall[1] it opened in June 1947.[2] It was used by forces personnel, their families and local civilians until it closed on 31 March 1983.[3]

    The hospital was situated near the small village of Nocton in rural Lincolnshire and partly in the grounds of Nocton Hall. The Hall was used as the Officers' Mess. The main part of the hospital consisted of long corridors with wooden hut wards and departments branching off them. The hospital was on a slight slope so the corridors were not level.

    In 1984 it was leased to the United States Air Force (USAF) for use as a wartime contingency hospital. During the Gulf War, over 1,300 US medical staff were sent to the Hall and many were billeted at RAF Scampton, although ultimately only 35 casualties had to be treated. In its later days 13 American personnel remained to keep the hospital serviceable. RAF Nocton Hall was handed back to Her Majesty's Government by the USAF on 30 September 1995 but has never been brought back into use as a hospital.
