This Victorian villa was built in 1857 as a two-storey summer house for the Cobourg Railway Director. Modifications were made to the house in 1867, including roof alterations and the addition of the west wing. The third floor was added in 1900, along with the Beau-arts Corinthian portico with balcony and Corinthian porch.

It wasn't until 1952, when the 95 year old building became a private hospital. 50 years later, in 2002, Sidbrook Hospital closed its doors. On this day in 2011, as i approached the 154 year old abandoned heritage site, i had other things on my mind. The tall green fence around Brookside Youth Centre across the street was giving me flashbacks. i was a different person once...

Nice location, plenty of interesting angles in it and good light too by the looks. I enjoyed your 'blog post; thoughtfully written and pleasing to read, might have been nice to see more of this sort of thing in the report and fewer links (one usually suffices), but other than that I have no criticism.

Looks like a lovely place without any Chav vandalism, just natural degradation, I hope. :) Would like to see more pics.

I am in total agreement with SK on this one, it was a great report but too few pics but what there was, was good, so Thanks.
