    Default RAF Hospital Nocton Hall


    Overview of the history
    RAF Hospital Nocton Hall opened in June 1947 with 740 bedís serving predominantly RAF personnel. It was used by forces personnel, their families and local civilians until it closed on 31 March 1983. In 1984 it was leased as a wartime contingency hospital to the USAF and then on 30 September 1995 the hospital was handed back to Her Majestyís Government and was never used again.

    The explore
    Whilst we were stopped taking photos, I saw a black figure to my left briefly, then I look behind to check the whereabouts of the others to see a black figure briefly there as well. The first may well have been jsp but the latter figure....? Maybe jsp was throwing his shadow? Anyhow, as a non-believer I maintain the view that there is an explanation. The fella however said he "didn't feel alone."

    My take on the hospital.......

    Many many people have reported feeling strange in Nocton, including myself. Most say they feel like they're being followed or have someone stood right behind them especially in the surgery end of the main corridor. There is something definitely not right about the place.

    There is apparently a local resident who has taken it upon himself to seal up all the holes in the fence regularly nowadays...

    Really like your take on this place, Excellent photos
    Not seen anything untoward myself at this place; but always impressed with the scale of this place. Hard to imagine how busy it must have been at the height of operation

    Yes it was busy, I was a patient there in 1950, sad to see it in this condition.
