Sir Titus Salt Hospital in the late 19th century

Sir Titus Salt's Hospital and almshouses

Sir Titus Salt’s Hospital was opened in September 1868 and provided crucial medical help many decades before the foundation of the National Health Service. Sir Titus Salt’s provision of social support also included the building of almshouses for people fallen on hard times.

Extensive research is being done on the history of the hospital and almshouses, and the first installment is available as an interactive timeline.
