Former Normansfield Hospital removed from 'at risk' register
A derelict former hospital has been revived and removed from English Heritage’s At Risk register.
The Grade II listed Normansfield Hospital in Teddington has been converted for residential use and is nearly finished after work began in 2010.
The derelict hospital was neglected for years as well as being a victim to vandalism.
Councillor Pamela Fleming, council cabinet member for environment, said: "The cultural heritage of this borough is rich and we are fortunate to live in an area which boasts so many buildings of historical interest.
"It has been a delight to restore the Normansfield Hospital to its former glory."
There are currently ten buildings in the borough on English Heritage’s critical list, including Sandycombe Lodge in St Margarets and Pope’s Grotto in Twickenham.
