    Found this looking for Hartwood Hospital in Scotland. Not sure what it was used for, might have been where they lived?

    Some history from Wikipedia

    "The remains of Hartwood Hospital, a 19th-century psychiatric hospital with imposing twin clock towers, are the main feature of the village, even after its closure under the direction of the Lanarkshire Health Board in 1998. On the morning of 28 June 2004, a fire broke out in the disused Hartwood buildings. This involved the destruction of the admin offices, dining hall and clock towers. After it closed in 1998, it was used as a studio by Lanarkshire Television, but Lanarkshire Television was closed down in 2002. After LTV left, the hospital fell victim to vandalism and fire. Security men regularly patrol the site to fend off vandals."


    Inside it was dry but the was rot in the floor. I went to go down the main staircase, put my hand on a post that held the hand rail, and the whole thing slowly rocked forwards then back into place! F-That!

    Not much to talk about really. Just room after room of the same. Shame they let all these old buildings go to waste

    I think this was the nurses accomodation. Remember walking around it after doing the main bit, but it was pretty well sealed at the time.
