    This place has been "on the list" for a while, so I'm pleased that myself and Obscurity have finally got round to doing it after 2 failed attempts earlier in the year - it didn't disappoint!

    There's quite a bit of history to this place, so here goes. (shamelessly stolen from Wikipedia)

    It's only a small part of this hospital that is empty, the rest is very much live. This part is visually the most stunning thou, with the building forming a crescent with lots of individual rooms overlooking a fantastic bit of Kent countryside, obviously dating from its days as a Sanatorium for the tratment of TB. Most of the rooms are small and stuffed with various hospital items, some of which look pretty new to me! It's pretty clean in there and you could almost think this part was still used, but it really isn't.

    Cheers to Obscurity for driving, this was the only success of the day as the other places planned were either undergoing conversion :( , absolutely impossible in daylight or had security with big dogs.

    Anyway, on with some pics. Apologies for some of these, muggins here forgot his tripod so these were handheld at a higher ISO and have had to be de-noised a bit.

    It looks like this on the outside

    And like this on the inside









    Errm obscurity, this bits looking suspiciously Live

    Yes, vending machines still on, plasma tele on the wall on, I think this bit might still be used mate!

    Now we nearly decided to see how far we could push our luck through the live parts, but in the end decided not to.



    One last parting shot as we left

    Thanks for Looking,
