Visited last week with a non-member friend. Did not think we would be able to get in during the day as it's on a busy road, houses etc. Also, a live building site next door. Turned out fine though and we enjoyed a nice mooch around the remaining building. Made up for Camelot being cut sort:)

Billinge Hospital was originally founded in 1837 as a Wigan Poor Law Union hospital and workhouse. Opened in 1968, Billinge Maternity Hospital served as the maternity facility for the surrounding areas, including much of the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan, parts of the Metropolitan Borough of St.Helens and parts of the District of West Lancashire.
In June 2004, the maternity hospital was closed and maternity facilities were transferred to other units at hospitals in surrounding districts. Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Trust, who administered at Billinge Maternity Hospital, were transferred to a new maternity unit at the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary (more commonly known as Wigan Infirmary) in Wigan. Maternity care units were upgraded in surrounding boroughs at Bolton Hospital, Salford Royal, Chorley Hospital, Warrington Hospital and Ormskirk Hospital.
In March 2007, demolition work on the maternity hospital building commenced. In April 2010, only two buildings stand which are due to be demolished soon as more houses are being built on the site of the former hospital.
2014 and still a little left.
