    I visited here with @Lavino and @GRONK. It was a nice early morning and I was eager to get in this one as I had seen reports and the place that made it look really amazing. And when we got there we were straight in and the morgue was the first place we went, and they were in very nice condition but you could see where one had been removed. And then once we had a nice look around around the morgue area we moved onto the main building. When we first entered it looked very nice but once in the hall it got very dark and spooky :confused:. Anyway on the way out we got caught by the security who then rang the police. After giving them details we were put into the back of the police car and taken to our car, nice little ride :D. Here are some pics from the visit and some history hope you enjoy ;).

    The first buildings on the site of Selly Oak Hospital were those of the King’s Norton Union Workhouse. It was a place for the care of the poor and was one of many workhouses constructed throughout the country following the introduction of the Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834. This act replaced the earlier system of poor relief, dating from 1601.

    The rising costs of poor relief had become a national problem and the new act sought to address this. Throughout the country, parishes were formed into larger unions with the power to raise money from rates on property to pay for the poor. King’s Norton Poor Law Union was formed from the parishes of Harborne, Edgbaston, King’s Norton, Northfield and Beoley. Each of these five parishes had individual workhouses.

    These were replaced in 1872 by the new, much larger one at Selly Oak. It was built to accommodate 200 pauper inmates. Central supervision by the Poor Law Commissioners in London ensured that all workhouses were administered similarly by a set of rules and regulations. How humanely these were interpreted depended entirely upon each local board of Poor Law Guardians, who were local worthies. They were elected annually and gave their services voluntarily.

    Nice report and good pictures. I see the expensive new alarm and camera system they installed around the perimeter is working well.

    Did you have a look at outpatients at all? Apparently there's false limbs in one of the rooms which I want to have in my life!
