    Winchcombe Hospital, Gloucestershire.

    So here's another mediocre Cotswolds hospital for you guys.

    A comprehensive history is hard to come by, but here's what a cursory browse threw up. I'm sure huey will put something better together as part of his desparate quest for likes..

    Okay, perhaps I'm being unfair to the place. After that ghastly Moreton Cottage Hospital we visited a few months back I had low expectations, but in fairness this place was reasonably dated and there were enough curiosities left behind to make it worthwhile. It was also nice to see inside after 6 years of trying as it's always been as tight as a drum; fortunately, matey boy has removed the boards since buying it (presumably so he doesn't have to look at an eyesore every time he wafts up the world's most expensive driveway) and so we were presented with a nice easy way in.

    I should probably warn you that it has become part of some millionaires back garden, literally, so anyone visiting should bear that in mind (not that I'm expecting people to flock here, although somewhat astonishingly 3 groups messaged me about that Moreton shithole..)

    Verdict? Meh, but a reasonable wander with good company. Besides, anywhere with turd brown NHS signs, floral curtains and working operating theatre lights is worth a look in my book.

    The wards themselves weren't exactly dynamic mind:

    Beautiful stained glass windows in the water closet:

    Most of the bathrooms were shit but I did appreciate the avocado green shower cubicle with a roof. Reminded me of one of those crazy Japanese pod things.

    And to be fair, the hospital wasn't as devoid of olsdchool touches as I had feared.

    If Huey is on a "desperate quest for likes" may I suggest that he puts up some photos of his missus in the Page 3 thread

    Regards
    Bertie (who has more likes than Huey)
