    Gulp my first 28dayslater post.

    This place has been visited before but it was my first visit and also a first I took a tripod.

    It seems a pretty walk in relaxed affair but there is a manned unit to the north west of the grounds.

    Below is some history via wiki

    Barnes Hospital, also known as Barnes Convalescent Home, in Cheadle, Greater Manchester, England, is a former hospital. It is located near to the A34 road and is in the middle of the complex interchange between the A34, M60 motorway and M56 motorway. Whilst the hospital was constructed in a rural setting, it is now surrounded by roads.

    The main building is Grade II listed, and lies on green belt land.

    It closed in September 1999 while Manchester Healthcare Trust was undergoing a £2 million cost cut.

    The hospital was sold in 2001, and is now owned by Reality Estates.

    During World War II the hospital was used as a convalescent home for wounded soldiers. Following its closure the hospital temporarily housed a large group of refugees from Kosovo. It was featured on Most Haunted Live in September 2005. The site was briefly occupied by around 100 gypsy families in February 2007.

    on with the piks




    The obligatory chair shot












    Thanks for looking
