An very early trip to see this was in order as it only closed fully 2/3 weeks ago, while i hoped to see some kit left in the hospital it was fairly stripped out and nothing major other than a few baths and the Dentist surgery had any kit left in them.
Visited with Clebby.

Ok some brief history, opened in 1871 as the Delancey Fever Hospital and was named after Mrs Delancey who stumped up the cash to part fund its opening.

In its latter days i think it was more a Geriatric patients with it being your last stop before departing, in its earlier days(pre 48) it was used as an isolation hospital.

I cant find what the plan is for it but there was talk of turning it into a school but im not sure if that still stands. The building and lands was offered for sale in 2008 with this given as the planning blurb.

The hospital lies within the built up area of Cheltenham. The
adopted local plan does not identify the site with any specific
designations. The site is not within a conservation area. Trees on the
site are subject to a Tree Preservation Order. The buildings are
included on the Council’s local list of buildings of architectural or
historic interest. English Heritage have confirmed that the buildings
do not meet the criteria for statutory listing.
Steps have been taken to promote the site for redevelopment via
the emerging LDF. The Council’s recently published (April, 2008)
interim report on Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment
(SHLAA) has identified the site as one potentially suitable for
housing. Whilst not a formal allocation, this is a positive indication
of the site’s residential development potential.

It was a high Iso walk about as onsite surgery couldnt save my tripod.
