Ward 2 the latest to burn

YET another fire has ripped through one of the abandoned buildings at the former Royal Derwent Hospital in New Norfolk. The partially demolished Ward 2 went up in flames late last night, with fires in all three wings of the building.

The building on Ring Rd was one of the first two wards erected at Royal Derwent, with construction starting in 1956. Its present owners had recently started demolition works as part of their ongoing project to clear the site. Last night’s fire gutted the building and brought down the roof.
