    Default Royal Victoria Hopital Folkstone June 2019 ( pic Heavy )



    we spent a good 2hrs in this building - looking around and exploring Unfoantly couldn't get up to the 3/4th floor -_- as they took the stairs out - We encountered a group of 15 kids to trashing the place -_- place been on my to-do list for a while now but in a very bad shape .



    History : https://www.kentlive.news/news/kent-...ne-one-1280592 & https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_...al,_Folkestone



    The hospital opened on Rendezvous Street in Folkestone as the Folkestone Dispensary in 1846. The name was expanded to Folkestone Dispensary and Infirmary and it relocated to a site on Dover Road in Folkestone in 1863. The current general hospital buildings were constructed on Radnor Park Avenue, and opened in 1890, when the name was again changed, this time to the Victoria Hospital. The prefix Royal was added in 1910.

    In the 1970s, services were scaled down, with the focusing of regional hospital care in East Kent on the town of Ashford, Kent. In 1973 maternity services were moved to Ashford's Willesborough Hospital. In 1979 the new William Harvey Hospital opened in Ashford (ironically, named after Folkestone's William Harvey), and many other services were transferred here over the following years.] The accident and emergency department at Royal Victoria Hospital was closed at that time, leaving it with a minor injuries service.

    Unless they've sealed everything on the 2nd floor you can get up an external fire escape to the 3rd and 4th floors.
