The Infirmary

A hospital was opened at the start of 1882. It was one of the largest cottages converted into a hospital. Dr Laurence, of Chepstow together with an assistant ran the hospital at this time.

Then a new one was built (the one that was built has plans with it and was the infirmary). The infirmary was built late 1882, shown opposite. This hospital opened later in 1882. This second hospital had accommodation for female and male medical staff, an operating theatre and a ward for women and children.
