    Clearing out the cobwebs, not a groundbreaking site, but the only other report I can find is Speeds report of the same occasion. On our way volunterilly to a police station to sit in their waiting room and push their paperwork around we had a few hours to kill. Entering 'find nearest explore' into the satnav we found ourselves at the quite frankly, wrecked, hospital site. Estimations we missed the boat on this one by about 2-3years! In which time the owners, yup, you've guessed it a housing development firm have let it go to absolute ruin much to the annoyance of local councillers who have slated the developers plans and effectively capped their '200 house site' down to a poultry 40. Meaning they will make huge losses/ never start the project unless adequate provision for the existing bat population (which wouldn't be there if there was still windows in the buildings lol) is catered for and a number of key buildings (the sandstone ones) are utilised in a pleasing manor. Basically a council that has balls, hurrah! :eek::cool:
    Now for some history...

    and now for some pictures. Nothing starting I'm afraid, all handheld whilst thumbling about treading on airsoft pellets.

    The village style hospitals euro layout type looks eerily similar to stuff we see on the continent.

    nice to see the NHS treating people in a fitting manor. Like an inanimate object.

    the difference between middle eastern scotland and the tuscan mountain sanatoriums of Florence is the italians use high quality white marble & brass fixings, wheras in irnbru'land they use concrete, brick & simple wood.

    Its not the worst hospital I've ever been to, but it would be fair to say the place is meak and uninteresting, or at least, we didn't come across anything all that interesting, assumed it had all gone years before.
    Since our brief visit there in march its had a substantial fire and the coucillars have become even more aggressive with the owner, though appears to have fallen on deaf ears :rolleyes:
