    Hi all, :hello

    This is my first report so please go easy.

    visited with paul2129 We spent hours here and could have stayed longer but we ran out of time :mad :banghead

    so a revisit will get done sooner or later.

    History;

    ‘The site is split into two half’s with the older Orphanage to one side and the more modern but trashed ‘Mount Street Nursing Home’ in its sorry state on the other.

    St Joseph’s was built in 1872 from funds given by Mrs Maria Holland for the benefit of the sick poor.
    Initially founded as an orphanage for girls, run by nuns, to shelter them from the harsh realities of the Victorian Era; disease, abuse and homelessness were common and this home provided a safe haven.

    Over the years, the property increased in size and in the mid 1950's the hospital became completely and independently run by nuns, again for sick people. This continued for more than 30 years but was gradually run down and closed in the mid 80's.

    On the Theatre street side two wings of the old hospital were converted and refurbished to form 'Mount Street Nursing Home.
