What happened to the buildings after the closure?
Following the closure of the hospital, an outpatient clinic opened in Cottage 2. Furthermore, during the eighties, the grounds were used by a number of film corporations to shoot movies, including Police Academy and the series Night Shift. A history of each building is more broadly covered in Buildings. And as it is usually the case with many many old, abandoned institutions, the structures quickly began to deteriorate, often falling prey to frequent trespassing and ensuing vandalism.
