The Explore

Had a quick look one day to show Urbexbandoned the nice peely corridors. I’ve been about 6 times now so only took a few snaps. Got the shot i wanted which was an aerial one from the top of one of the tower things. Nice relaxed wander :)

The History

Nocton Hall was acquired by the Air Ministry in 1940 and turned into an RAF Hospital. The Hall itself was used as a "clearing station" until 1943.

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. In its later days 13 American personnel remained to keep the hospital serviceable. RAF Nocton Hall was handed back to Her Majesty's Government by the USAF on 30 September 1995 but has never been brought back into use as a hospital. Various development plans have come and gone and the main hall has acquired grade 2 listed status, who knows what'll happen…
