Date: 1917 - 1922 (c.)
Description: The hospital was formerly called the Military Hospital. Among those pictured the only person to be identified is Sister J. Price who is seated at the front.
The hospital was built for World War I as a Military Hospital, but continued to be used until the late 1920s. After this time local miners moved in and squatted in the buildings, and so the site became known as 'Brindley Village'. The 'village' had its own school and working men's club and survived until the early 1950s, when the inhabitants were moved to a new council-built housing estate on the outskirts of Hednesford.
