|Name:||Birbeck Hall, Great Hospital|
Birbeck Hall was built in 1901 by E. Boardman, on the site of the medieval kitchens and brewhouse of the Great Hospital (NHER 624). This red brick and flint building has red brick and stone details and a pantile roof, and contains fragments of the medieval fabric from the previous buildings. The south bay adjoins the passage arch of Chaplain's house (NHER 26105), and has a Tudor-style arch bearing the date 1901. The Hall is considered to be a good example of Victorian/Edwardian Gothic Revival architecture.
