    Been meaning to do this one for ages. It's right on my door step (about 1.4 miles away from my house to be exact!) so I'm not sure why I haven't yet.

    I did this one solo, and I forgot how nerve wracking it can be to be an 8st, 5"4 male alone in a dark building with expensive camera gear. Every bump and creak shits you up. :eek:

    The place is actually pretty large once you get into the thick of it. There are a few sealed off ward buildings that didn't look that interesting anyway. Nothing special really, a lot of empty rooms and long corridors but I really enjoyed this one. I have a soft spot for derps, especially ones with stairs and corridors. :crazy

    A couple of Solutions SK vans pulled up as I was on my way out, though they didn't see me coming out of the building. I didn't think much of being on site because the outside is still used as a car park.

    Oh and unfortunately the hole for the tripod screw on my camera has lost it's threading... so no tripod shots. A few of these are really blurry and/or not exposed properly but nevermind. :rolleyes:

    Hope you enjoy anyway, I did. :thumb

    History nabbed from Ninja M's post.​

    Presently known as Cherry Tree Hospital, dating back to its foundation year of 1880, the site was also titled Stockport Infection Diseases Hospital up until 1948, a reference to Whitehill Sanatorium is also noted. The cost of the build was reported to be £4,645, approximately £473,000 in todays money.
    Prior to 1948, the hospital was used for the isolation of patients with diseases, particularly Tuberculosis, with a separate ward being provided for Typhoid sufferers. After 1948, the level of care was widened to accommodate other illnesses and ailments.
    During the early years, the wards held between ten to sixteen simple framed beds, swan-neck bed lights and a large linear table as a focal point for the ward. The striking feature being the wooden herringbone floor.
    The wards were provided with earth closets which would be emptied from the exterior of the building.
    Aside from the general staff, there were seven live-in staff, Matron, three nurses and three servants.​
