North Elevation - after restoration.
From Sheffield Telegraph article – 4.12.08
“They will find that the 1877 Jessop building has been restored to its former glory, both in terms of retaining and restoring features such as ornate staircases and cornices and cleaning up the brickwork.
Former matron Angela Culley, now retired and living in Fulwood, and who knows the building inside out. She believes the Jessop's original benefactors would be pleased with the care taken in the refurbishment.
The transformation had kept the style of the place, while creating modern accommodation. "I think they have done a brilliant job," said Miss Culley, who was matron from 1987, then head of nursing and midwifery during the relocation.
"I get the feeling that the renovation has been done by people who cared. It was not done by somebody just doing a job but somebody who appreciates the history associated with the building."
Admirers also include Prof Anne Peat, Dean of the School of Nursing and Midwifery at the University of Sheffield, who was a student nurse at Jessop in 1970 and a tutor from 1977 to 1997.
"They have retained much of what it originally looked like," she said. "I think they have done an excellent job. Nothing has been spoiled."
