The construction St Nicholas's hospital in Salisbury was funded by Bishop Robert Bingham in the 13th century, possibly at the same time as the building of Bishop's Bridge, which diverted traffic off the main road into New Salisbury. The hospital had a right and left range and a church whose nave has been demolished.

In the 18th century a new general infirmary was built by John Wood the Younger in Salisbury, and the hospital buildings were converted for use as almshouses.
