FORMER nurses at the Kind Edward VII Hospital in Midhurst were invited back to see the restoration of the historic buildings.
Some 170 former members of staff took up the invitation when developers City & Country joined them to visit the now transformed hospital and surrounding buildings. The visitors were treated to a comprehensive tour of the impressive sanatorium and its surrounding grounds which have also recently been restored to their former glory.
The guests explored the measured walks around the estate set amongst the South Downs Way and the newly restored interiors of the main building.
Trudy Parris, said: “I’m sure City & Country now realise just how much the old place means to so many and how many experiences and memories are held in those walls.
“I was really pleased to see it loved again!”
The hospital closed its doors in 2006. City & Country gained planning permission for the restoration in 2011.
The estate was reopened in April this year with apartments in the listed buildings and new homes in the grounds.
