    The History
    In June 2004, the maternity hospital was closed and maternity facilities were transferred to other units at hospitals in surrounding districts. Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Trust, who administered at Billinge Maternity Hospital, were transferred to a new maternity unit at the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary (more commonly known as Wigan Infirmary) in Wigan. Maternity care units were upgraded in surrounding boroughs at Bolton Hospital, Salford Royal, Chorley Hospital, Warrington Hospital and Ormskirk Hospital
    In March 2007, demolition work on the maternity hospital building commenced. As of May 2007, only a small section of the maternity unit is left standing.
    Opened in 1968, Billinge Maternity Hospital served as the maternity facility for the surrounding areas, including much of the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan, parts of the Metropolitan Borough of St.Helens and parts of the District of West Lancashire.
    Billinge Hospital was originally founded in 1837 as a Wigan Poor Law Union hospital and workhouse. Mental Health services.

    The Visit
    Well, this was a biggie for me, I have never done a hospital so this was my first proper hospital explore and.. well I wasn't disappointed.

    Got to the hospital and found access in a matter of minutes spent around 3 hours looking around the hoopital and found a loft so @Lancashire lad made me go get a ladder and look into the loft.. Turns out there was nothing there.. Also crawled around in the crawlspace under the hospital anyway forget it look at the photos..

    Enjoy!

    Good stuff! Liking the rusty light switch. Good choice for your first hospital as well saves you being disappointed later on if you know what i mean.
