NEW CROSS HOSPITAL

Postby kiwi » Thu Mar 15, 2018 9:39 pm

Slightly of the Manor but I would think some of us may have a memory of having been in there, including myself,1983 & 1984.
New Cross Hospital, Avonley Road,1906. opened in 1877. It was established by the Metropolitan Asylum Board as a smallpox hospital and developed into a general hospital treating infectious diseases serving the south-east London area. Its buildings were added to in the early 20th century. Under the National Health Service, it came under the control of the Bermondsey and Southwark Hospital Management Committee and various functions were transferred from Guy's Hospital. The hospital was run down in the 1980s and 1990s and nearly all the buildings have now been demolished. New housing on the site of the former Hospital. Avonley Village is now luxury accommodation. The Hospital closed in about 1991.
