Recommended Posts

East Fortune is a small village in South-East Scotland, famous for the airfield constructed in 1915 to help protect Britain against German Zeppelins during the WWI.

In 1922 a hospital was founded on a nearby plot of land. Named The East Fortune Hospital it initially served as a tuberculosis sanatorium until the WWII when the unit was moved to the Bangour village about 40 miles to the west (closed in 2004 and now derelict). 

Falling number of the tuberculosis cases in Scotland cause the hospital to be converted to a clinic for mentally handicapped in 1956. It served that purpose until 1997 when it was finally closed down for good with the patients transferred to a nearby unit in Haddington.

There are asbestos dust warnings all over the place so mask is highly recommended however it seems that most of it was already removed judging by the missing ceilings in some of the buildings.
