Built for a total cost of £4,148 the Ipswich and East Suffolk Hospital opened in 1836 and over its two-storeys had an initial capacity of just fifty beds. Over the years the hospital expanded significantly although it’s role as the primary hospital for the Ipswich area ended with opening of the Heath Road Hospital and it is now the BUPA maintained Anglesea Heights Nursing Home. What was once the main entrance to the hospital, with its four lofty columns, is lit up at night showing the late Georgian building off in quite dramatic fashion.
