    Visited with Jaff Fox and Alley.

    Orginally named Stockport Workhouse and designed by Henry Bowman who was also responsible for the Congleton workhouse. It was intended to acommodate 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.

    Security are still very active on this site and we seen several patrols. It was a stealthy explore from start to fnish. Externally there are many CCTV cameras, it took us over 3.5 hours to cover every section.

    The south section...

    R1 was really shocked at the scale of this place!

    Carlin the place was like a graveyard for these baths all intact too :)

    Mortuary completely void of slabs, rumoured to be in the basement now.

    I'll remove em if you want, i didn't explore it well enough to justify doing a report - but the pics are kinda relevant here!

    Did you go into the bit of tower just above the clock?

    Nice pics MP! like the exposure.

    Yeah Alley got some shots from inside the clock tower, all the workings have been removed though. There was some ladders going up to the bell but missing a lot of rungs and looked a tad unsafe :freak

    Excellent photos Dodge, and MP :thumb

    Pixie - you'll love it, radiators aplenty :)

    I didn't go up the bell tower, just took the back of a clock face and a couple of views.
    There were three stone clock faces in one large room, sadly no mechanisms left.

    So much better than I expected, a sprawling and very photogenic site.
    Plus my first morgue, very cool.
