    Arrow Wolverhampton Royal Hospital, April 2012


    This is one of the few sections left of the Wolverhampton Royal Hospital. The wing was built in 1937 it contained the following depmartments:

    Basement: Occupational Therapy, Swimming Pool, Instrument Curator.

    Ground 1st Floor: Graham Adams, Scott / Twentyman, Harper Millar wards.

    2nd and 3rd Floors: Sheldon / Langley wards.

    4th Floor: Maxillo-Facial Surgery.

    The whole site was closed in 1997. Tescos now own it and according to their masterplan the plan to use the existing entrance building as a front for their store. The older Nurses building is also still standing. I don't see room for this building on their new plan so I wonder why it still stands.

    It's hardly a new find, but good to see it none the less. A shadow of it's former glory!
