Aerial view of St Margaret's Hospital, Epping, Essex. Designed by Lewis Vulliamy, the site began life in 1837-8 as the Epping Union workhouse. The original workhouse was the cross-shaped building right of centre. The large block to its left was a later infirmary. The fan-shaped array of huts towards the top left was constructed during World War Two when the site was an Emergency Medical Service Hospital.
