Once part of the St Olave’s Hospital, the Gatehouse  and the old building nearby were purchased by a private developer more than a year ago. While the old building used by SLAM is now use for residential purpose, the Gatehouse is offered in the market for commercial use.

St Olave’s Hospital

The Rotherhithe Infirmary was built during 1873-1875 in Deptford Lower Road (renamed Lower Road in 1888) on a 2-acre site adjacent to the workhouse of St Olave’s Poor Law Union. The Infirmary had a central administrative block, flanked by male and female ward blocks on each side which could accommodate 175 patients.

The gatehouse, one of the few buildings to survive .The Out-Patients building, which was converted into the 17-bedded St Olave’s House Nursing Home, has been closed for many years now and it is owned by NHS properties with no clear indication of what the future of the site may be.

The rest of the vacated Hospital buildings became derelict and were demolished.  The site was redeveloped in the 1990s and is now a housing estate.

The gatehouse was used by the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust (SLAM) until it was finally vacated after being sold.
