Passmore Edwards Cottage Hospital, Falmouth

Falmouth's first recorded hospital overlooked Swanpool Beach, somewhere near the end of what is now Boscawen Road, and probably served infectious cases from visiting ships. Later, a small private hospital was provided but the first public Hospital, which incorporated the dispensary was built in 1893 at the top of Killigrew Road.
