Standish Hospital was a former park and country house turned specialist orthopaedics, rheumatology and respiratory care National Health Service (NHS) hospital, located in the hamlet of Standish, Gloucestershire, England.[1] Closed in 2004, it is proposed for a mixed-use residential and medical campus style redevelopment.

Standish Mutual Care Trust proposed turning the residual 31 acres (13 ha) site into a centre for health and well being, but were out bid by a private healthcare concern.[6] Having then proposed total redevelopment to residential, Gloucestershire County Council are now proposing a mixed-use redevelopment of the site into a health and social care centre. Proposed as a "health campus", it would offer supported living options and access to care for the elderly and people with physical and learning disabilities.

The Explore

Visited 3 times over the space of a month with clebby and huey. It's been a while since I've been out exploring due to various other summer time commitments, but this was good way to get back on it. Looks like it's been a while since this one has cropped up so hopefully I've captured a few bits that some of you haven't seen on here. Despite the onsite security and the vast number of PIRs that litter the place, this was a fairly relaxed stroll. It was refreshing to not see much in the way of vandalism, mainly just natural decay which made a nice change. We managed to cover the majority of the site with ease, only missing out the X-ray department and the nursing block I think.

Photos are all handheld unfortunately as I was expecting it to be a fairly short visit especially when the alarms were screaming around us, yet somehow on our final visit we must've been in there 3-4 hours undisturbed.... all photos are spread across a sunny evening and a wet and miserable afternoon.


















The oldest derp toilet I have ever seen....

If you're an explorer who likes gas masks and codenamed cottages, you will be caught here. Don't say you weren't warned!

Cracking work guys! Love the natural carpet in 15. Thought this place was getting to difficult, I was wrong :thumb

This is only about ten miles from me and I used to spend a lot of time there as a kid thanks to my dad being ill a lot. It's a shame the plane has gone; used to love playing on and in it. Does anyone know what happened to it? I imagine it would of been scrapped due to the horrific state it was in.

Thanks for the great pics and trip down memory lane, not that I saw anywhere near as much of the place back then

My mum was in their just a few years ago - it's amazing how quickly the infrastructure deteriorates.
Depending on when she was in there, she may have been in the live bit that's not attached to the old bit. Not sure what the live part is used for though
