Visited with djflava, wordsfromluke and a non-member.

This place has been covered quite a few times before therefore so has the history, so I'll keep it brief.

Stone House Hospital, formerly the City of London Lunatic Asylum, was a hospital and former mental illness treatment facility in Stone, near Dartford, Kent, in the United Kingdom. As of November, 2007 the hospital has been closed, and bids have been taken for its redevelopment to house luxury flats.
After 1892, the asylum was able to take "private" patients (patients whose fees were paid by their families, or from pensions). The influx of private patients resulted in a budget surplus, and enabled expansion and improvements of the asylum's facilities. In 1924 the facility was renamed the City of London Mental Hospital, and in 1948 it was taken over by the new National Health Service and became known as Stone House Hospital. A 1998 assessment by Thames Healthcare suggested that the hospital was not suited for modern healthcare; plans for the hospital's closure were initiated in 2003 by West Kent NHS.

Despite the time and day we visited, the place appeared to be full of builders, contractors etc, not to mention security who do enter the buildings, however we did not encounter them this time, until a near miss as we left the site!

Our next plan was to go onto Severalls and carry on there, however due to a very dodgy pasty djflava had eaten the day before, we thought it best to call it a day :p:

On with some photos:
