    Default National Temperence Hospital in London


    With regards to the former threads and posts about the National Temperence Hospital......

    The National Temperence Hospital was open until mid-1990, it also featured special social service services in the unoccupied rooms of the hospital, after closure, it was used for storage. In 1998 there was lights on, up until 2004 it was used for both storage and administration purposes by UCLH, Over the last few years, it was sold off to the Natiional Medical Research for 80 Million, they was going to use the site for animal testing and medical research purposes, however the site deemed to small so they are not going to use the site, and therefore remain unused. In fact I think the site is still used for storage as well as carparking space outside,they still have on site security.



    The next door building is an outpatients department for drug and alcohol problems so technicallly it remains a temperence service.

    The rest of the hopsitals responsibilities remain at the main hopsital building at UCLH.

    For now the hospital remains derelict, Local MP's plan to knock this fantastic building down as well as the BHS warehouse across Cardington Road, I SAY NO! They shoud re-open it as a temperence hospital, they keep moaning about Britain having problems with alcohol, so why not use it again, sod Margaret Thatcher, she is gone! So reopen it!!!!

    On the outside this building ticked all the right boxes for me, ie semi-gothic workhouse Victorian - nice.









    Started off quite promising...








    But mainly the rooms were stripped and empty...


    Some details still remain...


    ...and I really liked the "conservatory" corridors...




    This one links to the Insull building, which is totally locked down...


    Quite a nice cast iron balcony


    Quick tour of the basement, flooded...






    Must be the only item of hospital equipment in the building...
