Visited with Catullus.
This place is pretty trashed and there’s not a lot left, but it’s worth a visit if you’re in the area and have an hour or so to spare.
It was a very relaxed explore until my comedy exit at the end, when I got my tshirt caught on the (very tall) fence just as I dropped down to the floor. I ended up hanging by my clothing a few feet from the floor shouting “help me help meâ€￾ until Catullus came to unhook me.

History from Curious Places:
Eastry Hospital started off life in 1835-6 as The Union Workhouse. It quickly grew in size over subsequent years with more accommodation blocks being erected up until the 1870s. The layout was a traditional design, with the buildings being erected around a large courtyard. A chapel was built close to the road on one side of the workhouse. The workhouse eventually became Eastry Hospital, which was a centre that specialised in the care of people with learning difficulties. It finally closed in the late 1990s.

Since closure, a lot of the site has been demolished. The front buildings all remain, along with the front section of the old square workhouse. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get into the chapel as it was completely sealed.
