    This was the first visit to the hospital for me, I hadn't planned on visiting Stockport. I started the day with Denbigh in mind, I did my research yesterday and all seemed good so I got on a train this morning to Rhyl. Only to find out that no busses were running between Rhyl and Denbigh (Despite Travelline advertising that thy were running on the Sunday timetable) :banghead. So £30 down on the train ticket I headed back home only to get diverted because the train ahead of us had hit a f**king Cow. :banghead. So I ended up in Stockport. I'd done some research on the hospital in the past but didn't really think it would be worth a trip on it's own. But as I was in the area and feeling annoyed I went for a look. I didn't come across any secca on this trip apart from the College security, who didn't seem to bothered that I was wondering around the outside of the site.

    Anyway is some stuff taken from the internet;- St thomas hospital was originally a victorian workhouse built in 1842 and designed by Henry bowman to house 690 inmates there was a workhouse here before st Thomas's but was destroyed in a riot.The site is now owned by stockport collage who are renovating the site,the hospital was closed down in 2004 and has been slow to be completed.Despite the the site been renovated there is still plenty to see including the morgue which can occupy 12 bodies.

    Aye, it wasn't too bad in the end, just wish I had more time to explore. Yea the Morgue was kind of sealed, you can get into the building but the internal doors have been boarded up. :(

    I've been here a few times recently, the building has really deteriorated since I first went in 2010

    The leaky upper levels of the women's ward are in bad shape. It's certainly seen better days

    It was alright, It is worth a re-visit if I'm in the area. But I wouldn't travel up there just for it. :)
