The Herb Garret

At the top of the old spiral staircase in the barn-like roof space of an old Church. As the Church was the Parish Church of St Thomas's, it was put into medical use and used to store Herbs for the hospital's apothecary. In 1822, the Hospital authorities constructed a state of the art Georgian Operating Theatre in the Garret.
