This one has been giving me an itch for a little while now.
Sadly the psychiatric block is now secure - on all levels.


The Royal Hospital Haslar, completed in 1762, was built to provide a dedicated military hospital for the Royal Navy. Set in over 60 acres of beautiful parkland, with many Georgian Grade II listed buildings and a prime seafront location, Haslar has a long tradition of delivering care and well-being to its residents.

In November 2009 the Ministry of Defence (MoD) sold the site to OurEnterprise, a company dedicated to pioneering new models of social and community-led regeneration. This new model is delivered through a Social Enterprise Partnership between public, private, and third-sector organisations, which together commit to deliver a united vision of physical, economic, social and cultural regeneration.

Today the Royal Haslar site extends to approximately 62 acres of land and comprises approximately 75,000 square meters of buildings. Eighteen buildings on the site are either Grade II or II* listed.

Standing on a peninsula overlooking the Solent, ‘Royal Haslar’ is a prestigious and historic site that over three centuries from 1753 was the first Naval Hospital that provided a proud and continuous service of care to the sick and injured of the Navy and Army returning from 18th and 19th century areas of conflict and battle. Throughout the 20th Century Haslar served those injured in both World Wars and many campaigns and conflicts, whilst in later years from 1948 caring for the people of Gosport and the surrounding area and over the centuries Haslar’s gates were never shut to friend, or foe.
Some of the historic London hospitals have earlier foundations, but Haslar’s story of British military and clinical history is unique. The 8,000 – 12,000 bodies which lie buried in the Paddock and grounds bear testimony to Britain’s global reach since the 1750’s.
Haslar Heritage GroupHaslar as a hospital and the clinicians and staff made considerable contribution to medical advances over the centuries covering medicine, science and geographic exploration with many famous men from Haslar being active in all aspects of research.

Yeah you can blame the cnuts at 28DL for that... oh wait...

Nice to see you can still get around the rest of it though. Must be too cold for security to be out.

Bwian doing a sterling job again :D
to be fair, he had done quite a good job on sealing up such a large site. It took ages, and a bit of ingenuity to find a way in, this time. I could imagine it being quite a tough job keeping on top of it

It's amazing how it looks relatively untouched from the outside, but then you go in and it's a whole different story... however, with that said, it looks like a sand blaster for the floors and a lick of paint for the walls would have this place back in semi-working order.

Shame you never got in the psychiatric block... think the admins need to make a section of this site for the 'trusted' members that isn't in the public domain, as it seems to be a few people spoiling a lot of peoples fun :(
