This would appear to be a duplication of NHER 851, although these two records were previously mapped in two separate locations. Whilst the former location of NHER 26326 (TG 220 090) would appear to be erroneous there is nevertheless clearly uncertainty regarding the exact site of St Saviours' hospital. The NMR record suggests that it lay near Muspole Street, this information being taken from (S1).
