Magpie423 and I started our weekend explore. First on the list was CMH down at Aldershot. Although we had had some info on how to get into the grounds it took some finding an access point. We were just about to give up and decided one more mooch and low and behold we were in :)
History - The Cambridge Military Hospital (CMH) was the fifth military hospital built in Aldershot. The CMH was built by Messrs Martin Wells and Co. of Aldershot. The building costs were approximately £45,758. The first patients admitted to the CMH were on Friday 18 July 1879. They either walked or were taken by cart ambulance from the Connaught Hospital. The title had nothing to do with the Cambridge area but came from His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge who was the Commander-in-Chief of the Army at the time. The Duke of Cambridge opened the CMH Aldershot in July 1879. The Cambridge Military Hospital closed down on the 2 February 1996.
