Re: Southern General Hospital & Redevelopment

Ariel views hugely different from the streetview Have a look at Law Hospital... that's really crazy: 55.759034, -3.855989 The default photo must be from around 2001 as there are still cars parked all over the grounds.

Went through yesterday. I see the old Mortuary site is now cleared. Is that going to be another car park? Yes, another car park.

Erm, can the Roundhouse be accessed from inside the INS, or is it now padlocked?

Re: Hospitals & Asylums

As you say Dazza, many of the patients went out to live in the community where, sadly, many were left to 'sink or swim' on their own, partly through lack of staff numbers to support them.

All these are now gone in the past 25 years: Belvidere, Birdston, Blawarthill, Broomhill, Canniesburn, Cowglen, Darnley, David...
