Built for the benefit of the patients of the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital, the former Fletcher Convalescent Home is now itself in need of some TLC. Absorbed into the NHS during the twentieth century, it was converted into a geriatric unit and then closed and sold for development. Planning permission for its conversion to housing has been granted, but the requirement for some of the accommodation to be affordable housing has proved a sticking point, which has delayed work on the building for several years. Meanwhile, the former Fletcher Convalescent Home sits rotting, its stained glass windows smashed and open to the elements, deteriorating with every passing day. – http://www.victoriansociety.org.uk
The next instalment of our Darbian super tour was this lovely building. Accompanied again by Lowri, Dystopia Shush and our top tour guide Darbian. Our stay here was brief, we were not interrupted but whilst this is a beautiful building there isn’t really a lot to see inside and light was poor in most rooms due to the boarded windows. The corridors and staircases were enough to make it worth while.
