    I've been rather lazy recently and despite exploring over the summer months I stopped posting here. So a belated report for Standish hospital, visited on a rather lovely day with Clebby, Seffy and WhoDaresWins.

    History
    Standish Hospital was a former park and country house that was given to the British Red Cross during WW1 where it was pressed into service as a military hospital. After becoming a US Army medical facility during the Second World War, it was nationalised as part of the NHS, specialising in orthopaedics, rheumatology and respiratory care across the whole of Gloucestershire. In this role, it undertook joint replacements, as well as caring for coal miners from the Forest of Dean with the most serious of respiratory problems.

    The hospital closed in 2004.

    Pictures of Elvis was his face scratched to ribbons decorated the room which I like to call the, "I Hate Elvis" room...for obvious reasons.

    Excellent find with that swimming pool (no doubt there's a more technical name for it). Looks like a decent explore.

    It's a hydrotherapy pool, but yeah it was good fun other than all the PIRs and the deafening sirens that kept going off when we were detected. :)

    My mum did her nurses training here in the 70's. Really interesting to see this after hearing so much about it.

    Conversion started on Monday. They've only been clearing undergrowth so far (was there yesterday) so it's still worth a visit, but you've probably only got a window of a week or two if you want to see it before it loses its character.
