Welcome to Old Bangour

Bangour Village Hospital served the community of West Lothian for almost a century until it was shut down and abandoned in 2004. In 2020, what remains is due to be demolished to make way for a new land development project.


This website is dedicated to preserving the history of "Auld Bangour" and documenting its historical and cultural significance
