“The number of beds rose  from 44 in 1782 to 54 in 1784, and to 64 in 1787, when a new wing was added to the building. As an acknowledgement to the part played in the advancement of the institution by Nottingham’s western neighbour, the new addition was named the Derbyshire Wing.” (Iliffe R., Bagley, W. 1974).
