Leybourne Grange Colony, Kent.



Opened in 1936, Leybourne Grange Colony housed patients termed 'mentally defective' i.e. persons with severe learning difficulties. The hospital housed up to 1,200 patients, both children and adults. The buildings were centred around Leybourne Grange, a Victorian mansion originally built for Sir John Hawley.



Other buildings included dormitories, a main hall that doubled as a church on Sundays, a nurses’ home and a hospital wing.



The hospital closed in 1996 and the site is now occupied by the Leybourne Chase housing development with the Manor House, clock tower and a few outbuildings being retained.
