Moving past the burned out Main Hall, we arrived at the functional heart of Cane Hall. From this point northwards, the kitchens, stores and laundry occupied several large rooms with open slopped ceilings with glass skylights.

We turned left into the kitchens, preparing to walk through these, and then onwards to the wards to the west of the hospital.

As could be seen, a smaller construction was built in these old halls. Probably to give the kitchens a more ‘homely’ feel.

The distinctive green and white enameled light fittings are now quite collectable, but go under the quite ridiculous name of ‘Coolie-Cons’. I couldn’t begin to guess how someone in 1950s Britain came up with that.
