The hospital opened it’s doors in 1947. It was a 740 bed hospital in the area of Lincolnshire that was used by RAF forces personnel and their families until it eventually closed it’s doors in 1983.

In 1966, the hospital was fully functioning it had operating theatres, maternity ward and a neuro-psychiatric ward.

In 1984, the hospital was leased to be a US Air Force wartime contingency hospital, which was used during the Gulf War. During this time only 35 casualties were treated here.

The hospital was situated partly on the same grounds as Nocton Hall with the hall itself being used as an officer’s mess. The hospital itself was a slightly unstable building being built from mostly wooden huts and sat on a slope making the corridors uneven.

The hospital was handed back over to her Majesty’s Government by the USAF in 1995 and hasn’t been used since.
Had a great time with a friend, on a guided tour. Had a very informative guide, really interesting to learn the history, and the different parts of the hospitals uses. Although it's in a very sorry state, it didn't look much different from my first visit 15 years ago. It's nice to know the site finally being looked after.
