Selly Oak Hospital, Raddlebarn Road documented - over 300 images (external website)

I was given access to the site over two days with permission from University Hospitals Birmingham and Coleman & Co. demolition group.

Selly Oak Hospital started life as King's Norton Union Workhouse in 1872. Departments started to move from the site in 2010 into the new QE super hospital nearby.

There are still offices in use on the site and the Woodlands Nurses Home is still occupied by offices and accommodation.

I am led to believe that most pre-1960 (red brick) buildings will not be demolished but converted, the rest (such as A&E and Outpatients will be going). They are currently demolishing some of the buildings at the infirmary end of the site, but if you look closely most are not original buildings but later developments. Whether this turns out to be true is another matter, time will tell!!

Over 300 images and a history section on my website...

Thank you for sharing - very sad as it was my favourite hospital. I enjoyed looking through your photos and thank you for recording all this.

There are lots of memories associated with this hospital/workhouse. And more recent ones within my own family. I couldn't access your photos on the website though Derelict-uk.

I have only sad memories to be honest. My Mom died there, my Dad's time there was not good. We all have different memories.

That said I'm loving the photos so many thanks.

you can click on the home page image which will take you through to the selly oak section. If you are using internet explorer, maybe try another browser?

If you still have problems, could you tell me the browser you are using?

I have checked using both Chrome and Opera and both work fine.

Works for me on iPad and iPhone but not through IE9, page found but no "start slideshow" button.

The history page has the slideshow button removed. The rest of the pages should have the slideshow button.

Sometimes Internet Explorer is just pants though.

Thanks for the tip Derelict-UK. I tried opening it with Firefox, instead of IE, and it worked perfectly.

No problem Judy, IE doesn't work with a few things.

Hope you enjoy the pictures :)

I never visited Sell Oak hospital but I do remember a visit by H.M. The Queen, which I think was 1953. I stood at a cross roads waiting the see her and her car pass by.
