We actually visited the Abandoned Hospital in Bangour the same day as visiting Hartwood Hospital in our previous video but after seeing the actve security guards pass us in a car for the hundredth time we decided to leave and visit elsewhere. It was only after a few weeks that we decided to make it when people wanted to see what we captured from the trip (I was planning to leave it until we visited again…).
Bangour Village Hospital was a psychiatric hospital located west of Dechmont in West Lothian, Scotland. There was then a general hospital building created so it became Bangour Village Hospital. It was officially opened in October 1906, although the first patients had been admitted in June 1904. The hospital closed in 2004. The hospital was modelled on the Alt Scherbitz asylum of the 1870s, near Leipzig in Germany.
The closed hospital was used as a filming location for the 2005 film The Jacket, starring Keira Knightley and Adrian Brody.
