|Diary of a middle aged man|
Not the best set of pictures but here we go.
The organist's lamp still attached in the chapel that still exists unused on-site.
Stained-glass window to the memory of the medical superintendent from 1872 to 1902
Nave lights in the chapel
Yes, they still have film on plus equipment for mending film when it snaps (splicing me thinks its called)
Pew ends still in situ - they would be as they are firmly attached to the pews
The security gates and fencing were added after I had but fence off the garden to my 1st ward then called Rodney - a British naval Admiral
A new rest garden (as opposed to a garden of rest!) facing the bowls green with the new hospital beyond on the site of the old staff club and grounds
The hospital ward I ended my career on is to the right (ground floor) known then as Willow ward. Directly ahead Oak Ward, yes I worked there, and Elm ward below - where I didn't. The garden and the conservatory weren't there then
Now this is really incongruous wedding confetti in a closed ward..in one of the rooms...and the hospital doesn't have a wedding licence!
Contact details for a ward previously known as Larch but now non-functioning..the ghost like figures behind add a touch of atmosphere
One of the two projectors still in situ and with repaid might be capable of working again...but given the steps to get them out they would really not be able to be taken out
Oh and if you want it is a Grade 2 listed building that may be available for purchase from September!
