This cottage hospital on Victoria Road opened in 1888 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee of 1887. It was built to serve the "hard working poor", and was built by Benjamin Wishlade. A commemorative brick indicates that the bricks came from the Hampton Park Brickworks in Hereford. Originally there were three small wards, an operating theatre and a mortuary. By 1900 the average stay of a patient at the hospital was 32 days. It closed in 1917 due to lack of patients and funds but was reopened in 1919.
Staff and visitors alike have experienced odd things in this building, such as hearing footsteps, voices and cries.
