The History


Located in the peaceful rural village of Nocton in Lincolnshire stands the beautiful ruins of Nocton Hall. It is a grade two listed building dating back to around 1530.

It served as a convalescence home for wounded American officers during the First World War and was then acquired by the air ministry in 1940 and transformed into a RAF Hospital.

Up until 1943 the Hall was used as a 'clearing station', not long after 1943 Nocton Hall was chose
to be the home for the United States Army after the Americans took control over Nocton and
its grounds for the second time. It became the Army's seventh general hospital, and the hall used as an 'Officers Club'.

In this time Nocton served civilian's and forces personnel till the military decided to close Nocton Hall in 1983. The RAF decided in 1984 to lease Nocton to the US Army and so this one quiet building and grounds turned into a 740 bed hospital.

Sadly in the early hours on the 24th October 2004 a fire engulfed Nocton Hall, and so has left
this historic building as the ruins it is today, and at the mercy of nature reclaiming it back
as its own.


The Explore

I just happened to be in Lincolnshire with a few hours to kill so though I’d go and have a look.

Pretty easy to get into and only protected but a wobbly bit of Heras fencing.

The place itself is pretty ruined but at the same time really pretty.

Its hard to believe it’s the same place seen in this report by @turkey from 2006

As always enjoy the pics although you will have to excuse the fact they are from my phone J

It looks a bit like winstanley hall but I'd say that's the worse of the two. Winstanley still has its roof intact.

Trouble is, I'm a lard arse. And it would like like a bulldozer has smashed through it. The fence around the hospital has what does look like very new wire put around the top. I'm going back so will keep trying. It was my first time out, that's my excuse lol
