And another one gone

DEMOLITION has resumed on the former Royal Derwent Hospital site, with wreckers moving in on Ward 6 (pictured below). Ward 6 was built in 1966 and its demise started several months ago when tiles began to be removed from the roof. After a break of several weeks, work resumed last week. Situated close to Hobart Rd, Ward 6 was in a better state of repair than most of the other abandoned buildings, having been extensively renovated and refurbished in an ultimately unsuccessful project to convert it into a backpacker hostel and shop.

Video and still images of the destruction of Ward 6 can be found at the Willow Court and Royal Derwent Blog website here.
