History:
The Mount Hospital in Bishopstoke, Hampshire was a popular smaller hospital which mostly focused on rehabilitation for elderly patients but had various other outpatients' departments.

The Mount started as small private estate with the first house built by a wealthy farmer in 1844. It was later bought by a Captain Hargreaves in the 1870s. When he died it was bought by a Mr Cotton who rebuilt it in 1893. His imposing Victorian mansion replete with impressive tower forms the heart of the site. It originally had impressive gardens too suitable for a house of its standing with an arboretum, formal gardens and a Victorian water garden. In 1927 it was sold to Hampshire County Council who converted it into a hospital reusing the original Victorian house, as well as building a range of other buildings including another impressive art deco-ish ward building.
Me, Lil,Pezza & xXHUR5TXx all decided to give this place a look-see after hearing about it from one of our friends. After a tedious train journey and a bit of a bike ride; we arrive. We locked our bikes up next to the water tower and took a walk around. After being stung by a wasp or something and trying desperately to climb up to the only open window on the Victorian building in the middle of the site, we started looking around the actual hospital wards and taking photo's.
