Ok

These 3 photos are dated by Kodak as Sep 72 on the back.  It appears to be winter time, so I probably took them in the winter of 71 -72.

first up  - View of the Campsies taken (I think) from Lennox Castle Hospital



             


Second and third - pics of the hospital itself.   It was a Sunday that I was there, Only day I ever made trips to the Campsies, too busy otherwise.  

The place was like a grave.  I didn't see anybody in the grounds at all.  Very eerie.  I think it was still in operation at the time.



           


             


Enjoy!

Imp

It's looking worse now than the previous pictures... the internal walls have collapsed. Pictures of that coming soon

Can't believe this place is still standing, although only just!  Yet to visit when it's not pissing down but managed to get some pics anyway.
