The building at the end of the path with its clock tower was the Main Ward of the former Napsbury Hospital. The hospital was built, in its country house and grounds style setting, between 1898 and 1905 to the design of Rowland Plumbe. It was designed to accommodate some 1,200 long stay patients who through illness were unable to make a full contribution to society. The hospital closed in 1998 and the site and buildings have since been refurbished to create The Arboretum estate. A look at the Google satellite imagery, which currently shows the state of the hospital before the changes were made, reveals how many buildings were demolished to open up this vista. The houses on either side of the square are new.
