History
The Post Office Sanatorium Society was founded in 1905 to help working class Post Office employees control the tuberculosis epidemic when conventional medical insurance was not widely affordable. The business model of weekly member fees was proposed by a Post Office clerk, Charles Garland.

In 1923 the name became The Post Office and Civil Service Sanatorium Society, as the membership was opened to a new industry. In October 1990, the registered office moved from London to York. Ahead of its Time, a film about Benenden's history was made by Trafalgar Productions in 2011.

The Explore
As I recently relocated I thought I would see what was on offer around the area and this little gem popped up on the radar and it made me keen to have a crack at it as I still hadn't done a hospital (yes, mad I know) out of all the years in the game.

The hospital is a tricky one as some of it seemed alive, different buildings and areas with lights and power on etc so steered clear of these parts just in case. I didn't bump into a single person and was there for a few hours.

Entry was a tricky one but nothing will ever stop me :D I will try and try until its a chicken dinner. Once in I did have a try on the beds and equipment, yes the urges were too strong to resist. It was amazing to find all personal documents and files just left, odd. No derp is ever complete without the urbex poo (come on I'm not the only one).

Onto the pictures.

Great report, some nice pics there and looks like a good little explore, Right about the poo, no place is truly abandoned without a little "present" left behind.
