Built in 1810 on land formerly part of Derby’s Castlefield estate the Derby Royal Infirmary served the local area until 2009 when the majority of the services were transferred to the new Derby Royal ‘Super’ Hospital. The additional buildings added over the last 100 years have created a somewhat mismatch of designs and styles.  The whole site is due for demolition as part of a wider regeneration of the surrounding area.

    Can’t remember it, but this is where I was born 80 years ago.

    I had major surgery there in November 1998.

    Does anyone have any photo’s of that particular ward?

    I went today! It was killer, very interesting and adrenaline pumping after triying to stay away from gards ( they dident catch us.) the place is stuck in time from when it was shut down. We were fortunate enough to bump into 2 lads that new there way around, because it would be impossible to get around,
