Tamworth's old Cottage Hospital

This is now closed after over 115 years service and will be incorporated into housing development .It was originally built in 1880 by the Reverend William MacGregor and at first  had six beds and just one nurse. Additions were made to this over a number of years,including a wing donated by Mrs Hutton and by 1904 there were 5 nurses looking after 27 beds.When it first opened the hospital was supported by members of the public , and if you needed treatment and could afford to pay then you did so. This wonderful old building has now been gutted to form part of a new housing development.
