Visited St. Augustine’s Hospital on the way back to London after visiting the Rank Hovis Mill in Ramsgate earlier in the day.

A smallish hospital hospital on the outskirts of Chartham near Canterbury. Although not much to see and do (the place is really trashed), it’s a decent detour before visiting the main sites around the area though.

Some brief history of the hospital:

St. Augustine’s Hospital was built between 1872 and 1875 as part of an lunatic asylum complex over Chartham Downs near Canterbury.

The hospital closed in 1993 and part of the site was redeveloped into housing. Only 4 buildings now remain derelict with the rest a new housing complex.
