    Default Hazlar Hospital.


    The Royal Hospital Haslar
    The Royal Hospital Haslar was designed by Theodore Jacobsen and built between 1746 and 1761. The site opened as a Royal Navy hospital in 1753. It has had a very long and distinguished history in the medical care of service personnel both in peacetime and in war since that time, treating many tens of thousands of patients. In 2001, the provision of acute healthcare within Royal Hospital Haslar was transferred from the Defence Secondary Care Agency to the NHS Trust.
    The Royal Hospital was the last MOD-owned acute hospital in the UK. The decision to end the provision of bespoke hospital care for Service personnel was taken prior to the UK's expeditionary campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan, but was nevertheless followed through, largely on the grounds of cost. The change from military control to the NHS, and the complete closure of the hospital have remained the subject of considerable local controversy.
    The hospital formally closed in 2009 and the site has since started to be redeveloped. (Wiki)

    I have wanted to go here for some time. A walk around the perimeter fence earlier in the summer was as far as I dared due the numbers of fishermen and mobility scooters on the seaward side.
    Roll on August and an early meet in a Tesco car park saw a top team of Brickworx Matt and Andy heading for the seaside. A short shit breakfast stop at a filling station and soon we were parking up nearby. Although nothing to do with the site CCTV abounds in this area and leads to un easy feelings on the approach walk.
    After watching the sunrise from the promenade we entered the grounds.
    The sense of relief on gaining access was short lived though! as we looked for a way into the building a cheerful "Good Morning" came from the patrolling security man signalling a short walk to the main gate and a long walk back to the car.

    The next time it will be better we said to each other and it was. :D

    And the crew shot. The other twin was missing at this point.

    In all a top day out. The explore was cut short before we managed to find the machines in the ground floor by the same secca that rumbled us 5 hours earlier. He was not happy about finding us a second time and gave us a good speaking to on the way back to the front gate. :realmad: ()

    Later that day we went for a mooch around Fort Gilkicker a quality site that has now been vandalised badly and only worth a quick visit.
