St Anne's Hospital
Redstone Hill, Redhill, Surrey
St. Anne's was built in the 1880s as a school in Redhill, and was a four-storey red-brick building built in the shape of an 'H'. After the First World War the site became a Foundling Hospital, and then was sold to Surrey County Council in 1935, when it was then used to rehouse people from the Workhouse until it finally became a nursing home for the elderly and refuge for the homeless.
It ceased function in 1970 and the residents were slowly moved out, but in 1975 there was a serious fire that damaged the building and it was abandonned. It was finally demolished in December 1987.
