A little background on this location - St Augustine’s Hospital (1875–1993) was a psychiatric hospital in Chartham, Kent. It was founded as the second, or East, Kent County Asylum in 1872. In 1948 the hospital became part of the National Health Service and was renamed St Augustine's Hospital. The hospital gained notoriety in the 1970s when it was the subject of a committee of inquiry into malpractice and mismanagement. St Augustine's Hospital closed in 1993 and the site is now occupied by housing, although a few of the original hospital buildings remain.

Visited with UrbanKitty & TheSarge.

Our last location on the Kent expedition, we went on the first day of the heatwave a few weeks back. There is literally only a couple of buildings left on this site, and you can see the buildings from the road at the top of the hillside. A unexpected treasure!

Enjoy the photos! :p
