Put this up in leads years ago under Queen Charlotte's, after a lot of effort we managed to get both buildings done, persistence paid off in the end.

Unfortunately quite stripped but still some nice parts here and there, especially the one way glass and observation room, in later years it was used for child mental health.

Facebook groups have latched onto the place now and these goons are trying to charge people to explore here, you couldn't make this shit up.

In 1891 the Eversfield Hospital and Home for Consumption and Diseases of the Chest and Throat was opened on land at West Hill Road given by the Eversfield Estate with Doctor Gambier in charge.

This was a private hospital attracting wealthy patients and was absorbed into the NHS in 1948.

Dr Gambier (originally of Huguenot extraction) founded the EH after first opening the Hastings and St Leonards Throat and Ear Dispensary in Trinity Street in 1882. In 1884 it moved to Friedenfels Home, in Upper Maze Hill, and was opened for in-patients including those suffering from chest diseases.

Finally Dr Gambier founded and moved his expertise over to the EH, which was a fully-operational hospital with a complement of trained medical staff and nothing like its earlier incarnations, as described.

Gambier House

Couple of ropey phone pictures from the other building, was a real ball ache to get inside for little reward.
