The former Southwold Community Hospital building is being torn down to make way for a new community centre after a huge fundraising effort.
When the building closed in 2015 a group of locals were determined to save it but needed £800,000.
After a herculean fundraising effort by a group of locals, demolition work began on the town's old hospital site as part of a plan to turn it into a community hub rather than expensive new homes. However the site will incorporate nine new affordable homes.
Thanks to a combination of grants and selling community shares they've reached their target and the restoration has now started.

For 30 years the physiotherphy department at Southwold Community hospital treated thousands of patients. By the end of the week a building that has been there for 116 years will cease to exist.
In its place will be a community centre including a cafe and creche and it will become the new home for the town's library. It is due to open in 2021.
