    First explore in a while for me, so armed with my new 50D, I headed down to East Fortune Hospital for my 3rd visit. Surprisingly I got to see areas of the Hospital I hadn't seen on my 2 previous visits, so it was a new experience of this site.

    East Fortune Hospital was opened as a tuberculosis sanatorium for the South East of Scotland in 1922, when a World War I naval airship station at Drem, East Lothian was converted into a Hospital. For the duration of World War II, the patients were accommodated in a hutted annexe at Bangour Hospital. East Fortune Hospital became part of the Board of Management of East Lothian Hospitals in 1948.

    In 1956, as tuberculosis patients began to decrease in numbers, mentally handicapped children were admitted to East Fortune Hospital, followed by adults 3 years later. The Hospital became part of the North Lothian Health Board in 1974 and was finally closed in 1997, following the transfer of patients to Roodlands Hospital in Haddington.
