Visited this place today with Delongid95, Gorecki, Cuban bloodhound, Maden_2, Foz101 and Wolfism!

Delongid95 knew heaps about the hospital's history and was also able to explain the different equipment and ward situations etc which was a real good insight. :thumb

Went to check out Baldovan house as well, although there's not much left nowadays! :rolleyes:

The hospital was primarily a children's asylum for most of it's working life. The toys scattered everywhere and the famous ''world's tiniest toilet'' (Which we never saw this time!) accounted for this!

Quite a tardis!!

Looking from one of the buildings at the top of the site:

One of the wards! 'Accomodation units' in rows where people could spend many years! The Whittingham video shows this sort of situation in use!
