It was originally a workhouse, which says a lot about the style of building. It was still a hospital in 1998, when my grandaughter was born there, but has since been demolished to make way for a housing estate.

I knew a couple of the nurses there very well (as friends and relatives, I might add) between the early sixties and late nineties.  As a child I knew the buildings well as I used to play there sometimes.  There was, I remember, a large tunnel which stretched from underneath the main building right to the bottom end where the Path Lab was. 

The wards were named after saints when it was first a hospital - the only one I can remember was Christopher, the children's ward.  I will be seeing someone next week who worked there for over 30 years as a nurse, so I'll see what more I can unearth from her memories.
