    Originally named Stockport Workhouse and designed by Henry Bowman. It was intended to accommodate up to 690 inmates.
    After 1912, the workhouse was officially known as Stockport Poor Law Institution. It later became Shaw Heath Hospital, then from 1954 was known as St Thomas' Hospital. The hospital finally closed in 2004 and the site has now been acquired by Stockport College as part of their campus expansion. The main workhouse building and some other blocks are planned to be retained and refurbished.

    Heard about this place from a friend of mine who had attempted to enter and shoot this place for a photography project but had been caught by security. So me and my friend decided we'd take a look.
    Started by searching one of the side buildings with unboarded windows, and what we found was pretty interesting.

    Then it was onto the main complex of buildings, some of the buildings were boarded up and impossible to enter!
