Kingsley Green formerly known as Harperbury Hospital was a mental health hospital located in West Sussex. The Hospital was originally built in 1928 on a site shared with the Royal Flying Corps who used the surrounding area as an aerodrome. The hospital expanded with the addition of various buildings between 1929-1973 when things began to scale back. Changes in attitudes towards mental health issues were already starting to take shape and plans to integrate the patients back into general society were formulated. Over the following two decades the facilities wound down sharply with the closure of many of the buildings which became abandoned and were targeted by thieves and vandals. Some of the buildings remain open to this day, however, the majority of the patients have now left and most of the buildings have either fallen down, been demolished or are featured below.
