Was not going to do a report on this as to be honest it's rather small ,but its always been locked down tight when ive visited the remains of the asylum so when it came to my attention that it was indeed doable with a hour or so to kill before myself and UrbanGinger went elsewhere would be rude not to pop in..

Very brief snippet of info from what used to be the former workhouse/hospital which the chapel served

The former workhouse later became Eastry Hospital, a centre for the care of those with learning disabilities. The hospital has now closed and the site is being redeveloped; the infirmary block has been demolished along with most of the entrance block. The Grade II listed "Old Buildings" remain, along with the chapel
Just a few pics of what it looks like today as like i say it is rather small

Hi all
We visited today. One of many over the past few years.
Managed to have access to the chapel this time and here’s the pics.

For the past 12 years we have been coming to Eastry and have seen the decline of the listed building which is now in an unsafe condition and very much open to the elements.
Originally on our first visit the main Workhouse was intact as most of the building surrounding it. Today a very different story.

When I did here, sadly all the toys were gone. The hospital itself was very damaged, and collapsed in parts, and I didnt attempt the boiler rooms. But I do love that chapel. The doors, and curtained area with its rails are very nice features. :cool:
