    The last photo looks very smart for a day room (not that I've got much knowledge of them), without a caption I assumed it was a senior staff room.

    Main Hall / Recreation Hall (aka The Ballroom)

    The below photograph was taken by a former Nurse, who worked there for over 40 years, 'till it closed in 1997. More of her photos will follow once I get the time to scan them in.

    Administration Building (Main Hospital Entrance) & War Memorial

    I'd almost completely forgotten that the War Memorial stone is still within the Hospital grounds!
    It was moved sometime before the Main Hospital closed. It now stands to the rear of Birchwood Villa (which is where the Trust HQ moved to as the Main Hospital closed back in 1997). I believe that the Memorial was errected in remembrance of Soldiers who died during WW1, and a bomb that hit part of Severalls Hospital (the Building with the first floor on brick piers was the part hit and then re-built).

    War Memorial stone in original location outside Admin. (other pic is Ivy Villa) -copyright


    War Memorial at the rear of Birchwood Villa (still in use)









    If you are thinking that Birchwood Villa looks familiar, this is because it is almost identical to Orchard Villa, which stands abandoned east of Ivy Villa.

    Wow, what a difference there is between Birchwood and Orchard with one still being in use and the other derelict.

    Such a shame.

    Cheers Sal. I reckon that the moment a place gets boarded up, you might as well have a sign saying "closed, derelict, abandoned"! I reckon a single light bulb would do much more to protect a building!

    P.s. -incidentially, there is another Villa still open (Maple Villa), now called the Willows, I think, which is identical to Fernholme Villa.
