Well today started off with a hitch we went to milford climbed into the water tower took a few shots then reccied the rest of the site. Couldnt get in so off we went to The Mount Hospital southampton.

It started as smallish private estate with the first house built by a wealthy farmer in 1844. It was later bought by a Captain Hargreaves in the 1870s. When he died it was bought by a Mr Cotton who rebuilt it in 1893. His imposing Victorian mansion replete with impressive tower forms the heart of the site. It originally had impressive gardens too suitable for a house of its standing with an arboretum, formal gardens and a Victorian water garden. In 1927 it was sold to Hampshire County Council who converted it into a hospital reusing the original Victorian house, as well as building a range of other buildings including another impressive art deco-ish ward building.

The mount hospital is looking pretty trashed and we did try the mansion but its all boarded up unless you own a ladder
