    RNH Bighi was a major naval hospital covering the Eastern Medi (Gibraltar covering the western medi). It opened in 1832 and surgical blocks were added in 1901 and 1903. It saw service through both world wars and sustained heavy damage to the X-ray theatre, cot lift from the jetty and the east and west wings. The hospital itself was closed down in 1970 following the rundown of British forces from 1967.

    Some parts of the hospital have been converted into a Secondary school and a kindergarten. However, there are large parts standing totally abandoned awaiting restoration. The following are a selection of photos taken from a visit taken earlier this summer.
