|Type of record:||Building|
|Name:||Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, St Stephen's Road|
This part of the hospital includes the administration block and the main hall. These were built in 1859 by E. Boardman with Thomas Henry Wyatt as a consultant. These structures are made from red brick with ashlar dressings and a plain tiled roof. The balustrated stone parapet of the roof here has a central scrolled cartouche bearing the Royal Coat of Arms and Doric pilasters with alternate brick and stone bands. A number of memorials and sculptures were added to the building over time including a 1914-18 war memorial plaque and a bronze sculpture of a mother and child created in 1874 by Sir Joseph Boehm. The site is now being redeveloped by Persimmon Homes for residential purposes.
