    Bedford Hospital “Workhouse” Ward, Bedford – Feb 2016
    Visited back in February with Southside Assassin on a day of mixed explores. Interesting access here but a nice explore with a good atmosphere and bolted onto the side of a live hospital!

    It has gone by several names over the years, Bedford Union Workhouse, St Peters Hospital, North Wing Hospital and the latest; North Wing Health Village. All these names cover the entirety of the site as a whole and this part has laid dormant for a number of years.
    The building was designed and built in 1796 by local Architect and Builder; John Wing. The primary use of the building was to house and care for those unable to look after themselves. After several changes of use in the 1800s; in 1842 the Masters Report indicated that 151 residents occupied just 92 beds here. Extra wards were built in 1916 and the workhouse closed in 1949 becoming the Bedford Hospital North Wing under the NHS.
    I’m not sure when it closed for good but I believe it to be around 2007/8 and was used for storage till much later.
