Abandoned Lennox Castle Hospital
3D model taken from Phantom 3 Pro drone of the abandoned Lennox Castle Hospital.
IT was hailed as being ‘‘100 years ahead of its time’‘ when it opened in 1936 to care for the treatment of people with learning disabilities.
Hidden in a wooded estate, well outside Glasgow’s city boundary, Lennox Castle hospital - built for (pounds) 1m - was chosen for its rural, peaceful and safe location.
Apart from a few who had jobs on neighbouring farms, the 1500 patients catered for at its peak, aged from 10 to 80, lived mainly in their own community, separate from their neighbours in Lennoxtown, with their own workshops, school and recreational facilities.
After a fire in 2008 the building now remains as a shell with only small hints towards it’s previous life.
