In 1962 or 1963 Chris managed to get to the top of the water tower and took a series of photos of the North-East corner of the grounds.  The individual photos have been joined together to make a panorama that carries on where Dennis Herrell's series leaves off.  In the foreground is the roof of the 'Club' - used for many years as a common room.  On the left is Kett Hall and behind it is a group of huts and a truncated nissen hut used then, as now, for storage.  These days they are screened by a hedge.  The rest of the small huts - chalets - were homes to the married members of staff and their families. What was the other nissen hut used for?  It doesn't appear on the original hospital plan.
