The Cumberland Infirmary, Carlisle.
The Cumberland Infirmary off Newtown Road to the west of the city centre.
A substantial redevelopment was opened in 1997 by the Right Honorable Tony Blair -
it is an object lesson in how not to design a hospital, the important steps to designing such buildings
were outlined in the 1960's. Those lessons have not been followed here at great cost.
