nocton hall | tragic coincidences

Just as the new hospital was completed in 1943, the Americans took procession again. The new modern hospital was redubbed the “United States Army Seventh General Hospital” whilst the hall became their rather swanky new officers’ club. At the end of the war, the RAF took it back over, and rechristened it RAF Nocton Hall, a permanent hospital for the county of Lincolnshire, with 740 beds available for servicemen and the general public from the neighbouring villages.

The hospital closed in 1983 with Nocton Hall returning again to private ownership.
