    Default Bangour village hospital..Scotland


    Did a solo visit of this place on the way home from a visit to Scotland.its always been know as one of the most hit and miss places about.buildings open and the close.this is due to the fact that even though people are freely aloud to walk around the site they so have secca there who drive around the site all the time.so its hit and miss if a building is open.luckily I got into three buildings.the intention was to take a lot of exterior shots as some of the buildings are beautiful.but the weather was atrocious so in the end I never bothered after getting a soaked camera and lens after two shots so gave up.Bangour village hospital was built in 1906 as a psychiatric hospital.originally under the name Edinburgh district asylum.it was modelled on a hospital in Germany that it was set spread out in villas to give it that village feel.it had its own bakery and workshop,library,shop and school and other various things.it was used by the war office in both wars,just as a lot of hospitals were then.it finally started winding down in the nineties with the final ward shutting in 2004.spraking to some people it seems demo is dues to commence in the next month or so.there are thirteen A listed buildings which cant be touched.

    The first building was the main hospital block.it was quite repetitive inside.and had some of the most dangerous floors I have seen,being in the back of the site it had been hit hardest by vandals









































    The next building was a small villa I quite this one even though it was stripped



































    This final bit was prob my favourite part with the massive white hall and the room were the ferns were with racks were industrial washing machines would sit.i still find it amazing how grand these buildings were done



















































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    The decay in that place is getting worse. Looks like a fen garden is growing.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
