Former Newark Hospital, London Road, Newark, Notts.
Continuing to stand proud at the junction of London Road (the B6326) and Sherwood Avenue - on which the white car is visible - is the former Newark General Hospital. Records suggest that this may have been Newark’s third hospital. The second one was a combined workhouse, hospice and gaol built in 1786 using funds from the Brown and Phillipot charity. That building became part of Hole’s Brewery (a.k.a. Castle Brewery) which still exists today, although now home to up-market apartments. This building (opened in 1881), was designed by Bliss and Saunders and built in red brick by Smith and Lunn. It cost £6,965 13s 1d. A maternity wing was added in 1939. This establishment closed in 1996 when Newark’s fourth hospital in Bowbridge road opened. The building was subsequently acquired by Derry Building Services who restored and extended it for their own use. A local woman shared a story with me about assisting with the running the hospital radio service in a room at the top of this building when she was a 6th form pupil.
