General Lying-in Hospital

Opened in April 1767 as the Westminster New Lying-in Hospital, on the north side of Westminster Bridge Road, Lambeth, Dr. John Leake was its first physician. After a chequered history, including WW2, it closed in 1971 and fell into dereliction. It is now used by Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust as a training facility and offices. The entrance porch, recessed in the main front, is stuccoed and its Ionic colonnade is flanked by slightly projecting wings with corner pilasters.

 

I thought the old chimneypots were wonderful against the new buildings!
