We are pleased to announce that the Royal Naval Hospital is featured in the brand new book 'Big Saves: Heroic Transformations of Great Landmarks' (978-0-905978-74-1) published by the architectural conservation group SAVE Britain's Heritage.

The entry for the Royal Naval Hospital describes how architect Kit Martin stepped in to sympathetically convert the building into houses and apartments following its closure as an NHS hospital in 1993.

Written by Marcus Binney,  this beautifully illustrated book shows how Britain has led the way in breathing new life into great historic buildings of many kinds - naval dockyards, military enclaves, textile mills, market halls, railways arches, air terminals, Victorian grand hotels, power stations, town halls and hospitals.

'Big Saves' follows on from a previous SAVE publication 'Deserted Bastions: Historic and Naval Architecture' (1993) which highlighted such buildings considered to be at risk at that time.

'Big Saves' is available to order direct from SAVE, price £25 (£20 for Friends of SAVE). Please click on the link below.
