ⓘ Royal Naval Hospital, Stonehouse

The naval hospital was built between 1758 and 1765 to a design by the little-known Alexander Rovehead. The design was influential in its time: its pattern of detached wards arranged so as to maximise ventilation and minimise spread of infection foreshadows the pavilion style of hospital building which was popularised by Florence Nightingale a century later. The site for the hospital was formerly known as the mill fields after the nearby tide mills on Stonehouse Creek. Towards the end of the century, Stoke Military Hospital was built by the Army, facing the naval hospital directly across the creek.

The hospital closed in 1995, now a gated residential complex called to visit. The website contains more than 20 buildings and structures.
