My collection of pictures of the infirmary, I took these pictures in Feb 2007

These buildings are now fully refurbished and are now lived in

Various views inside the Infirmary

The Infirmary had been closed for 8 years but some one had bothered to put in a new bin liner, probably knowing no one would ever use it.

I really wanted to but the banging upstairs put me off!

Ground floor looking in from the main entrance

Various views of St Luke's Chapel taken Feb 07

In the Artefacts section you will see a picture of  the original Victorian Chapel door key  also pictures of  the presentation trowel  used for laying the foundation stone in 1878

 

            Three views taken under the Chapel in Feb 07

 

More views taken March 07 showing main building and areas still to be refurbished

Most apartments have now been sold and the old place has life again, Some owners have reported some of the old inmates have not left yet!

All these buildings are now fully refurbished with people living in them
