Gartloch Hospital – Monday 7th April 2014

Visited Gartloch Hospital on Monday on the recommendation of a new like-minded chum. It was closed in 1996 after serving patients for 100 years as a hospital/asylum. It is now in the process of being redeveloped into a “luxury village”.

Shortly before its closure, it was used in the BBC television series Takin’ Over the Asylum where its distinctive French Renaissance style architecture served as the exterior of the fictional St. Jude’s Hospital. Although many of the surrounding buildings have been converted into homes, the Category A listed administration building remains derelict.

The Glasgow burns units must be busy, so many ARSonists seem to practice their craft there… The Ballroom was a nice surprise, which you’ll see at the end. Although at nearly 17st, I didn’t fancy too many of the floors.
