    The original buildings were constructed in 1849 by the Earl of Dudley to accommodate miners blinded in local mines. The miners rejected the Earl's charity, and the buildings remained empty until 1871, when they were taken over by local chainmaker Joseph Guest and turned into a hospital. The hospital's accident and emergency department closed in 1983 and was relocated to Russells Hall hospital. A new horseshoe-shaped extension was opened in 2003, but the old buildings - including the out-patients department - remained in use until October 2007. Most of the buildings are due to be retained owing to their historic importance, though some of the less significant structures are set to be demolished.

    Been here a couple of times before, but never managed to get everywhere. Hearing that portakabins had appeared on site we thought we had better take another look, stripping out and demolition is currently well underway. Visited with Mattdonut and Mr Sam.
