    Arrow Delancey Assessment & Rehabilitation Hospital, Cheltenham. April 2011


    The Delancey Hospital, Leckhampton, was founded by the late Miss Delancey, who bequeathed 5,000 for this purpose, but through some informality only 3,750 eventually became available : the late Rev. J. H. L. Gabell gave 1,000 towards the site and 5,365 for the buildings and furniture, and 1,000 Consols as an endowment fund. Opened in 1871 as the Delancey Fever Hospital. Closed by a short minded government intent on destroying all our community hospitals in 2011. 140 years down the shitter and probably destined to end up a Tesco local or suchlike..

    A leisurely Sunday sunny one accompanied by Incognito Lectrician & his bro. No Dhl this time as he's back in hospital the spotty fucker! Big love Dave and get well soon buddy!

    Thanks to Kempes & Clebbs for finding this little gem!
































































































































    Thanks for looking..

    Hey thanks for posting this - some good pics there

    I installed the telephone system and wiring for this (at the time rather smelly) hospital 20odd years ago and the wife worked there as well, so interesting to see the old girl all shut down

    cheers
