I went to visit my mate who lives in nowheresville, Lincolnshire, and on the way stopped to visit a couple of sites. Our primary target was sadly not accessible, so made a slight detour to look at Ferdowse clinic and Nocton hall military hospital.

I have visited Nocton before, and although we had a good look round the hall last time, we ran out of daylight before we could finish the hospital, so a return trip was needed. The site is very big, with lots of large wards and endless corridors. Got to see some different areas than last time, so was worth a revisit.

Some history;

Nocton Hall was acquired by the Air Ministry in 1940 and turned into an RAF Hospital, and in 1943 the Americans took possession of the Hall and grounds for a second time. Nocton became home for the United States Army Seventh General Hospital and the Hall was used as the Officers’ Club.

At the end of the War in 1945 the RAF selected Nocton Hall to be their permanent hospital for the county of Lincolnshire. RAF Nocton Hall was a 740 bed hospital under RAF control until 1984, used by civilians and forces personnel, one of the country’s undisputed RAF Hospitals. The decision to close Nocton Hall as a military hospital was taken on 31st March 1983.

We never managed to finish the whole site on our 1st visit either. It's a cool explore, and those never ending corridors are epic (y)

The Mansion's better days are behind it to be honest.
