    This was just meant to a quick look at the place from the road as in the past you cant get near the place for security inside & a cctv system in the grounds, but when i got there i found that nearly all of the windows & doors have been boarded up & were still in the process of doing the top floor & the front door was open.....i walked in up the steps into what seemed to be the reception area,there was a lot of wood around obviously for the windows,whilst there was no-one around i took a few cheeky snaps then about 30 secs later this workman guy came out of no-where with a worried look on his face,i just asked was he the boss of the place? to which he replied no...then i asked would it be ok to take a few pics?...he replied with am sorry its not up to me,i said ok thanks mate & left to have a look around the grounds being careful not to bump into anyone boarding any windows up...

    HISTORY
    grade 2 listed building....It was opened in 1874 by the architect sir Alfred Waterhouse on behalf of the liverpool seamans orphan institution to provide a place for children who had lost their families at sea.
    Separate wings for boys & girls but shared facilties,hospital & classrooms.

    All orphans were taught reading & writing in addition girls learnt knitting & needlework & the boys were instructed in carpentry.

    During ww2 orphans were evacuated to Frankby,Wirral but returned to Newsham in 1948.
    The orphange closed in 1949,after standing derelict for 2 yrs it was finally purchased by the ministry of health and became a hospital in the newly formed nhs.
    The hospital eventually closed in 1988 & the site has been derelict ever since,gradually falling victim to the elements & vandalism.
