This month marks the 20th anniversary of the closure of St Andrew’s Hospital, near Norwich.
And as part of an article looking at the past, present and future of the facility, we want to hear from staff who worked there.
The hospital, which was first known as the Norfolk County Asylum, opened in 1814 off Yarmouth Road, in Thorpe St Andrew.
It operated as mental health hospital until April 1998 when it was shut.
The original Grade II listed buildings on the south site have since been converted into private housing.
Meanwhile St Andrew’s House, on the north side of Yarmouth Road, was used as offices by the Norfolk Primary Care Trust until 2007.
It was later purchased by Graham Dacre’s Lind Trust.
Plans to redevelop the site to provide office space were approved by Broadland District Council in 2016.
