    Default Stratheden Hospiital..Scotland


    Sorry I have been a bit quiet lately. I have been dealing with a family bereavement and other stuff, but still getting out and about. I visited this former hospital with the girlfriend and a friend, on what was a beautiful subby day,I must admit I enjoyed my time here. A nice relaxed visit and parts of the hospital had that old asylum feel to it. There are some cracking long decaying corridoes to see as well.

    Sratheden hospital was built in 1866, it was originally called the Fife and Kinross district asylum. But with changes in the way the old asylums were renamed, it became known as Stratheden hospital in 1948. The hospital when first opened could hold up to 200 patients, but overcrowding became a problem. So it was decided to extend the hospital ten years later, this allowed the numbers to be trebled to 600. In 1905 another two hospital wings were built. Although a large part of the hospital is closed, a new section was built as intensive psychiatric care unit in 1916. It consists of communal lounge, rooms for rehab and therapy, private meeting rooms and so on.















    The legendary line up done by stussy and project mayhem.

























    Patient paintings in the glass.









    The physiotherapy room.



    The chapel had been modernised.













    A nice little trolley for carting a medical machine about.







    The labs were really enjoyable too. The clean white tiles and the dark wood.



















    The old shop was in an old part.it still had the old original ceiling, which you could see had been covered by a suspended ceiling.









    The hairdressers.









    Old cells













    The original dining room, note the suspended ceiling covering the beautiful original one.



























    A very large original ward, with lots of modern partitions buit in it.

    Nice shots and nice report. In most of the hospital you can see the original ceiling minus the suspended ceiling but it's a shame that the original ceiling is covered up. Looks better without the suspended ceiling.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
