News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

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!
