Barnes Hospital - Cheadle - October 2010

Visited with Zero81, Andy, ConkerKid and Shadow Play


Not the most exciting location, I've been about 4 times before, BUT the building itself is fantastic, very gothic and quite spooky in parts.

A donation of £26,000 for the founding of a new convalescent hospital in Cheadle was made in 1869 by Robert Barnes. Construction of the hospital, named the Barnes Convalescent Home, started in 1871 and was completed in 1875. It was constructed of bricks, the clay for which was provided locally.

The main use for the hospital in its later life was for geriatric care and stroke patients. 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. The main building is currently being converted into 42 flats, with the other buildings on the site having been demolished for the construction of 18 houses and 77 more flats.

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.
