Many people with incurable diseases prefer to come home to die.  Pre-NHS they were probably nursed there regardless.  Many houses over 50 years old will have seen a death, and by 100 years it's a racing cert.

My uncle died in there, albeit in the early 1990's, as did a great many other people over the years. Bearing that in mind, would you want to live in a new flat there? I wouldn't.

In the same way that the chapel (which is the oldest part of the hospital) has been.  Seems a bit odd, martial arts in a Norman church, but at least it keeps it repaired and maintained.

The latest information I can find implies that it will be turned into (you'll never guess) - flats!


Better re-purposed than being being pulled down I suppose; at least the main structure will remain intact.
