Another splendid day weather wise we set off bright and early. Was a little disappointed in this place. Managed to access a few, but it does look as though they are on the ball with securing the buildings. All in all it was a very relaxed mooch on a bright sunny day :). Visited with Magpie and another member.
History -
East Fortune Hospital was opened as a tuberculosis sanatorium for the south east of Scotland in 1922 when a World War I naval airship station at Drem, East Lothian, was converted into a hospital. For the duration of World War II the patients were accommodated in a hutted annexe at Bangour Hospital. East Fortune Hospital became part of the Board of Management of East Lothian Hospitals in 1948. In 1956 as tuberculosis patients began to decrease in number, mentally handicapped children were admitted, followed by adults three years later. The hospital became part of the North Lothian District of Lothian Health Board in 1974 and was closed in 1997 following the transfer of patients to Roodlands Hospital in Haddington.
