A hospital with a 140-year history is closing its doors for the final time.
The hospital will be replaced by a modern facility nearby
Loughborough General Hospital's site on Baxtergate in Loughborough, Leicestershire, had only 24 beds when it first opened in 1862.
It is being replaced by a modern facility on Epinal Way in the town.
Hospital manager Chris Lyon said: "It only had two storeys when it opened, but after World War I it had another two stories added.
Loads of memories
"The hospital does not fulfil our needs anymore, but rather than spend a lot of money to bring it into line with current NHS standards it is easier to build a new building."
Sister Janet Ingle, a staff member who started working at the hospital in 1967, said: "I am sure a lot of former patients and staff will be sad to see it shut."
"It has been a great place to work but we are very excited about moving to a new location."
Sister Ingle, who gave birth to her two sons at the hospital, said it holds a lot of memories for thousands of people.
