STAMFORD AND RUTLAND GENERAL INFIRMARY

DESCRIPTION + /

In 1823 Henry Fryer left in his will a large sum of money for an infirmary to be built within five years of his death. Following a competition in 1825 a gothic style design by J. P. Gandy was selected and the infirmary was completed in 1828 on land given by the Marquess of Exeter. This was the site of the former Stamford Greyfriars. In 1841 Edward Brown left £5,000 for a fever ward to be built and £6,000 for its maintenance. Massive additions have been made to the hospital complex during the 20th century.

The original building is of two storeys and a cellar, and consists of a central block with flanking crosswings. It has walls of Wittering Pindle and ashlar and freestone dressings. The abundant gothic detail of the central building contrasts with the restarined tudor gothic of the wings. Three fever ward blocks were built to the east of the central block and a laundry block was built to the north-east.
