The extensions were additions built sometime in the 1950/60's to Blewbury, Basildon, Compton and Caversham Wards, you can see how the hospital looked in this old photo of Fairmile taken from the air it shows the layout probably unchanged from when it was built in the 1800's
This is Basildon and Caversham wards in 2010 when I first went on site.
and Blewbury and Compton wards which were looking very dilapidated
This is what Basildon ward looked like in 2010.
It even had the bath still there.
Caversham ward was no different with bathrooms and wards still intact apart from no beds
This may well have been its day room
The wards had curtains
Though all the fittings were gone
The treatment rooms had cupboards and sinks in.
But it was not long before the wards were demolished.
I missed the demolition of Blewbury and Compton wards because one day I too this photo then realised something was missing I'd forgotten all about asking when it was going to be demolished.
But that is where it used to be
Presently the building looks like this and in about six months or less will be finished.
