The Kingswood building is a Victorian Grade II listed building dating back to 1878. The following images show some aspect of the conversion work by PJ Livesey Group, a company with a track record in the conversion of period properties. The site is set in mature woodland, adjacent to the City's adopted green belt. Today there are over 500 new houses within the hospital site. The Kingswood building accommodates 85 new prestigious apartments.   All photos below supplied by Steve Taylor of PJ Livesey

The name Middlewood originally comes from an old wood. A charter written in 1350 refers to the land lying between 'Medel Woddle' and the park of Waddesley.
