The other Saturday we went to have a look at the old Childrens Hospital. Access was easy but took some finding!!!

The history of the Bristol Royal Hospital for Sick Children goes back to 1866 although the building on St Michaels Hill was opened in 1885. The hospital was deemed too small & out of date by the late 80's so the Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal helped raise over £12m towards funding a new site next to the Bristol Royal Infirmary which opened in 2001. The older building slowly transferred all its services across to the newly built Hospital and the old buildings have been sold to Bristol University.

Thanks for looking. I think we got there just in time in all honesty.
