G Block Padded Cell, Royal Haslar Hospital, Gosport (Revisit)

“Disused naval hospital psychiatric ward otherwise known as ‘g block’. G Block was established in 1910 as a purpose-built psychiatric unit and was comprised of 2 wards, each with 12 beds. G-Block served as an assessment centre and sailors requiring longer term treatment were transferred to a psychiatric unit at Great Yarmouth. The padded cell was built by Pocock Brothers, a company who were responsible for the creation of a few other similar padded cells around that time. In practice the cell was rarely used.”
