Astwood
The Queens hospital was in Bath Row, and was later incorporated into the Queen Elizabeth in WW2. The buildings were then used as the Accident hospital (opened April fools day 1941) and demolished early 1980s

Evening All some people came out today they are going to fill our cavities

There is overwhelming evidence that cavity wall insulation causes damp.
That cavity is there for a reason and should never be bridged.

I do apologise. I was confused by a picture of the demolition of the Queens hospital, Bath ROAD, Wolverhampton.

I find it fascinating that the existing buildings of 1840 were already 100 years old when the new hospital opened in them. A fact that didn't prevent the amazing work and expansion that followed.
