    The Webb Orphanage was built in the early 1900's by Francis Webb for the children of employees of the London & North Western Railway Company who dies whilst working for the company in Crewe Works,After the orphanage closed it was used as a railway training centre then a Psychiatric hospital for people with personality problems. It has been empty for a number of years now, and is currently on the market for just under £2 Million. The building is surrounded by a small fence and a lot of entry points to the ground. :)

    The Orphanage was finally closed on March 31st, 1961. In 1963, the buildings were taken over by the British Transport Commission for use as a training centre. From 1997 to 2008, the premises were used by the Manchester NHS Trust Manchester as a hospital for people with personality disorders. In recent times, the listed building, now known as Webb House, has been up for sale with a price tag of around two million pounds.
