Following the lead posted by a new member on here (sorry can't find thread to give you credit) I thought I'd take a quick look.

This disused hospital has been known by a variety of names:

Sandhill Park Hospital
Sandhill Park House
Sandhill Park Farm Colony
Sandhill Park Mental Defective Colony
41st General Military Hospital




The site was requisitioned by the military in August 1940 and became the 41st General Military Hospital. Most of the accommodation was in tents and huts. From 1941 the hospital was leased to the Americans as a neurological hospital for over 1000 patients in 32 new wards which were completed in 1942. The hospital remained in military use until 1944

The main building dates from 1720, with newer additions on site. At present the main building appears secure, (although I had neither the time, nor the support to go searching - as this was a solo visit)

The rest of the buildings on site have been chav'ed within an inch of their lives.

Anyway - pictures!

Another large building, presumably once used for patient care, but clearly home to an IT-company prior to its disuse:

Tried to post the pics whilst on site, but this would not boot-up properly:

This small buliding had cleary lost to the chavs:

There a few other building on site that I didn't get time to venture into.



p.s apologies to the new member that posted the lead - I know you had been keen to join up with someone to visit - but this was a spur of the moment trip.
