Queen Elizabeth II Hospital

The original QEII hospital began construction in 1961 and was opened in 1963 by none other than Queen Elizabeth the second. The local school children were all given flags to wave at the queen, they were rumored to have been supplied by local author Dame Barbara Cartland as the local council couldn’t actually afford them at the time.

The hospital is now abandoned awaiting demolition to make way for housing and a care home.

The new hospital opened next door on the 15th June 2015
