St Augustines Hospital

Visited solo at some point in 2011.

Opened from 1875 until 1993. It was a psychiatric hospital in Chartham, Kent. It was founded as the second, or East, Kent County Asylum in 1872. In 1948 the hospital became part of the National Health Service and was renamed St Augustine's Hospital. The hospital gained notoriety in the 1970s when it was the subject of a committee of inquiry into malpractice and mismanagement. St Augustine's Hospital closed in 1993 and the site is now occupied by housing, although a few of the original hospital buildings remain.

Since my last visit, judging by the recent reports place got even more damaged i.e. piano has got smashed to bits..
