If you are afraid of hospitals this list is not for you! Abandoned asylums, hospitals, and clinics, in which electroshock therapy was used, we collected seven abandoned UK hospitals where you are unlikely to want to stay!
Cane Hill, London, England
Psychiatric Hosp. in London, Croydon worked from 1882 until 1992 year and it currently scares brave travelers with its abandoned rooms. In the 2000s, there were fires in the infirmary, which gave it an even more frightening appearance. By the way, Charlie Chaplin’s mother and the brother of David Bowie have been treated in the Cane Hill at one time.
Nocton Hall, Lincolnshire, England
This construction was an ordinary dwelling house, but during World War I, American soldiers have captured the estate and begun to use it as an infirmary for their wounded congeners. During World War II, it served as a building for the same purpose and later it has become a full-fledged infirmary.
This place is pretty frightening not only because the former infirmary has been empty since 1995, but also because of a terrible legend. They say that since the time of the existence of the hosp., in this building, people have seen the spirit of a girl. It is believed that it is the spirit of a girl who has been killed by the owner of the house, even before Nokton Hall was converted into a hosp.
