St Bartholomews Hospital, Rochester – Scaffolding Kent

The Scaffolding is complete at the former Bartholomews Hospital in Rochester Kent.

This famous hospital was Britain’s oldest surviving hospital. It provided specialist rehabilitation for stroke patients until services were transferred to Medway Maritime Hospital.

The building is being redeveloped to create 155 homes, ranging from one-bedroom and two bedrooms to three-bedroom houses at the location in New Road overlooking the River Medway and Victoria Gardens.

Of these, most will conversions in the main block and the remainder new build. The houses would be at the back in a separate Mews Quarter which will include a garden and south-facing terrace.

The redevelopment will be fully sensitive to the historic nature of the site.
