The old infirmary was indeed situated at The Green, where now stands the Co. Council offices. Prior to the council offices, it was known as the Council yard, and well into the sixties, part of the old remains of the hospital were still intact.I often heard the story of the man with a dreadful stammer meeting Dr. Knot and saying to him " Are----you-----knot-----the-----doctor"? and getting the reply :"Yes----I-----am-----Knot----the----doctor"!
