    Default Derbyshire Royal Infirmary/London Road Community Hospital, Derby - Dec '13


    The London Road Community Hospital, (formerly Derbyshire Royal Infirmary), is a hospital in Derby, part of the Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. It is based in the city centre. During the year that he was Mayor of Derby, Sir Alfred Seale Haslam managed to replace the old William Strutt Infirmary with the Derbyshire Royal Infirmary. In 1890 there had been an outbreak of disease at the old infirmary and Sir William Evans, President of the Infirmary arranged a three day inspection which condemned the old building. When Queen Victoria came to open the new hospital on 21 May 1891 she knighted Haslam for his services and gave permission for the term "Royal" to be used.

    I saw a report from March '15, It's well and truly trashed. Not even worth the petrol now :(

    A great set of pics of the old place,We saw it go from quite tidy to totally trashed over a few visits thanks to the local cider swilling chavs and metal fairies.

    Just for info,demolition is currently being carried out at an alarming rate, although the main hospital and tower and a few outbuildings are there still.
    How come I always find the deep water, pigeon crap and rotten floor boardslol

    I think some buildings are protected
