This has been on my to do list for a little bit so I thought it best to get it done as it's a long while since I last did a hospital.

Moreton-in-Marsh Cottage Hospital is a small Victorian hospital in the Cotswolds, it closed in 2012 after a new much larger facility opened just outside the village. There are a couple of buildings on site, the main hospital and a much more modern outpatients clinic. Since closure parts of the hospital have been used by a prop hire company as storage so there is all sorts of random objects stored in the wards. Once inside we quickly set off the alarm which was unavoidable but carried on regardless, we were upstairs about twenty minutes later when the security man showed up to turn it off which he did then left, so we carried on before duly setting it off again as we were leaving. We had a quick mooch around the outside of the outpatients clinic but couldn't find a way in so left before the inevitably quite peed off security man returned to turn the alarm off for a second time.

As far as modern hospital closures go nowadays its about as expected - very stripped, with a few things of interest left. Not really enough decay in it for my liking but it was a nice wander.

Despite the building not being listed, there has been an order passed to prevent it's demolition as it's an important asset to the community, so for now it'll sit here until it finds a future.
