    Bangour Village Hospital, West Lothian - April 16

    Visited as part of the Scotland tour with @Butters & @R0tt3nW00d   After spending a little longer than anticipated at Eastend, we decided to skip one of our planned locations and head here instead as geographically speaking it made more sense than heading yet further North at 4 pm. I'm...

Unfortunately the yard was never completed and the village then lay dormant having never been occupied. The huge...
