Visited with Telf1980 yesterday - Originally built in 1880 and was first known as Dialstone Lane Infectious Diseases Hospital (hmm sexy)

History
Presently known as Cherry Tree Hospital, dating back to its foundation year of 1880, the site was also titled Stockport Infection Diseases Hospital up until 1948, a reference to Whitehill Sanatorium is also noted. The cost of the build was reported to be £4,645, approximately £473,000 in todays money.
Prior to 1948, the hospital was used for the isolation of patients with diseases, particularly Tuberculosis, with a separate ward being provided for Typhoid sufferers. After 1948, the level of care was widened to accommodate other illnesses and ailments.
During the early years, the wards held between ten to sixteen simple framed beds, swan-neck bed lights and a large linear table as a focal point for the ward. The striking feature being the wooden herringbone floor.
The wards were provided with earth closets which would be emptied from the exterior of the building.
Aside from the general staff, there were seven live-in staff, Matron, three nurses and three servants.

Extensive ground works including soil sampling and clearances have taken place over the past year with the view of building homes on the site. The internals have been rinsed of any value, if there was a value in cable sheathing, we’d be quids in!

After looking at other Reports on this place I was amazed as to how big it was
it must have at least 9 buildings of various sizes, some are accessible others aren't but don't leave without going right to the back of place to check out the child care building, it's as spooky as an episode of Scooby Doo

Take note - There are tramps living in the main building so don't go alone and the space is used as a car park for staff so people are moving around

Enjoy...
