Samaritan Hospital for Women

The Samaritan Hospital for Women was founded in 1847 to provide free healthcare to women unable to afford private medical treatment. The present building dates from 1889-90. It is a bold, eclectic classical composition in red brick and terracotta with a tall pedimented centrepiece flanked by lower wings with bow windows. The hospital eventually closed in the 1990s.
