West Hill Drive, Mansfield, Notts.
West Hill Drive, Mansfield, Notts.
The site of the former General Hospital. Behind the fence work continues apace on a project to build new homes for over-55s. This now-demolished hospital began with five beds in the early C19th and boasted 108 beds by 1890. Sir Eric Sykes, the comedian, opened the last extension in 1950, a wing containing 60 beds. The hospital finally closed its doors in 1992, after the new King's Mill Hospital had been opened. It then stood empty for over 20 years. West Hill Drive empties out - at both ends - into Chesterfield Road South (i.e. the A6009).
