Work is underway to transform one of Britain's oldest hospitals into homes.

St Bartholomew's Hospital, in Rochester, was closed in 2016 and is now being converted into 155 homes despite fears of loss of local history.

KMTV report on the development

Plans were approved by Medway Council's planning committee in April last year.

Aspenisle Ltd's £1.4 million scheme will see the vacant building revamped with houses and apartments planned for the New Road health centre over the next three years.

Rochester West ward councillor, Cllr Stuart Tranter (Con), said: "Towards the end of last year, people were getting worried thinking the new building was looking derelict.

"It's great that it is coming to life, and I hope the people that do live there are going to reflect on the history and the importance of the building."
