Having recently had an explore of the large nurses accommodation (Bramble House) at the former Kingsway Asylum site, I had a revisit to the last two remaining buildings from the old hospital.

Braemar House was built at the same time as the nurses accommodation in 1931 for the purpose of an on duty Doctors house.

It's fared much better than Bramble House with regards to vandalism, probably due to trickier access and closer proximity to the main road (although the metal fairies have still had a go).

Refreshingly unvandalised rooms (almost)

This was a bit of an eye opener

A few bits of NHS paraphernalia lying about

And what once was probably a very nice fireplace

For the sake of completion I headed to the old hospital farm house which is the only original 1888 building remaining, with the fancy gable end being in the same style as the asylum complex. Some of the outbuildings appear still in use by a local business but the house itself has been laid up for a long while. Even photos from back in 2004 show it long derelict and boarded up.

Downstairs was completely crammed with ancient car spares including seats, body panels and the like

Some weird machine measuring steering torque, brake loads and reaction times

After navigating the snapped in half staircase I was disappointed to see upstairs was pigeon city thanks to a broken skylight

And that was it, not worth the effort but if you don't give it a go you'll never know
