Location : England

The Great Yarmouth Royal Naval Hospital was built between 1809 and 1811 on a 15-acre site.  The wards are in two story building around a quadrangle, with a row of staff accommodation to the South and outbuildings to the North with storerooms, additional accommodation etc.

With the end of the Napoleonic Wars the hospital fell into disuse and was then used for barracks until 1844.  It was then used for a decade as a military mental asylum, but with the outbreak of the Crimean War in 1854 reverted back to a hospital.  In 1863 the building again reverted back to being a Royal Navy mental asylum for one hundred and sixty patients.

Immediately to the South of the Hospital complex was a barracks for the Royal Engineers, but this site has been completely redeveloped.
