    For many years the only Cambridge nursing home to possess an operating theatre, the Evelyn also opened its doors to medical, maternity and psychiatric patients and to residents. Following an ambitious programme of modernization and development instigated by Morland Agnew’s grandson Julian Agnew in 1974, the Evelyn decided to specialize in the care of acute medical and surgical cases – a programme for which it was well equipped, thanks to its close ties with Addenbrooke’s Hospital and with the Cambridge medical fraternity. The hospital originally was a lot smaller and only had 2 floors, however a very modern looking extension was added on top. This is why the Operating lights, corridors and rooms seem a bit miss-matched and labyrinth like.

    In 1983 it was renamed the Evelyn Hospital as a reflection of its new status. Further developments in the 1980s and 1990s allowed it to establish itself as a busy acute private hospital with a reputation for high standards of medical and nursing care. However, the problems of running a standalone hospital in the changed environment of private medical care in the twenty-first century were considerable, and in order to ensure its continuing future, the hospital was sold to the Nuffield Hospitals Group in 2003.
    Eventually the hospital out grew itself and a new complex was needed. It never was intended to be a full size hospital and this in turn was it's down fall. Eventually plans were submitted, accepted and built upon which is what now sits dominating the older section.
    July saw the New Nuffield Hospital for Cambridge open and ever since they have been moving services over to leave the older section derelict.

    So this is a pretty nifty new location, we only found out about it through a plumber who had been working on the place.
    Visited with @slayaaaa @mockney reject and @Duckface.

    It seems to me as though the demolition is going ahead fairly quickly, and maybe the place won't have that much longer left?
    Anyway the whole explore was fairly dark and the place is pretty stripped, but the theatres were pretty cool..

    We tried, but didn't manage to get into the morgue too...

    The bathroom?


    Medication storage room


    The kitchen fridges
