Visit to St Andrew’s Hospital Site

Yesterday we visited the site of St Andrew’s Hospital in Norwich. We began at the memorial garden where patients from the hospital are buried alongside Polish community who came to St Andrew’s when it was used as a military hospital during the Second World War.

We then walked up to the North side of the complex and saw the only remaining part of what was a much larger red-brick building.

We managed to look through one of the windows to the mortuary which is set away from the main building.

We then walked over to the South side where the buildings have been turned into houses and flats.

The old chapel.

You can read more about the history of the asylum and see photos of how the North building looked in 2013 on photographer David Baker’s website.
