    Hello there,

    This is my first post after hitting a few locations in the past year. Never really get the shots I want because whenever I've taken a buddy they're more concerned about walking around than me setting up a shot. Anyway, this is the first place I ever visited with a camera so thought I'd share it. Hope the post is up to scratch and enjoy.

    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.

    On the way in we were approached by two nurses who came over from the still active part of the site who politely told us to f*ck off, so we did... Only to return as soon as they went back inside :p:

    The first building we found access to was a complete tip, looks like everything taken from the main buildings was just thrown here to rot

    We then got into the underground of the site

    And crawled though these seemingly never ending tunnels, but returned in fear of never getting out

    Cheers for sharing - can you just add a location to the title - not everyone will know its general location - just the town will do. :thumb
