Royal Naval Hospital - Walmer
« Reply #1 on: November 07, 2014, 15:41:50 »
Built 1800-1812 and not to be confused with the Military Hospital at the North Barracks (- http://www.kenthistoryforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=13527.0).

In 1930 it became part of the Royal Marines School of Music Deal.

Following the School's departure in 1996 the building was converted into apartments and its now known as Admiralty Mews.

Unfortunately the impressive clocktower was shrouded in scaffolding when I visited last week!
