Report - East Fortune Hospital, East Lothian - August 2013

First report, so hoping this is all OK! Visited back in August last year with Fake Snowman and two others.

East Fortune hospital originally opened in 1922 as a tuberculosis sanatorium, next to the well known East Fortune air field. However the number of patients fell after the second world war, and the hospital later became a psychiatric facility instead. It closed in 1997 and the buildings have lain unused ever since.

The hospital consists of a number of single storey brick buildings that once housed the wards, all built to a standard pattern. At the centre is a rambling main block with kitchens, and there are also other buildings on site including a boiler house and an ambulance garage. From the outside they are mostly not particularly exciting, but there's quite a lot to see inside and we spent a very enjoyable few hours looking around.
