Not sure why i haven't posted these until now. But here they are. Visited solo.

History gathered from what i could find on the internet, which was sparse to say the least:

St. Gerard’s was the result of Father Hudson’s vision for a purpose built infirmary, not just for the boys of St. Edwards but for those from all Catholic homes in the Diocese and the Catholic children from the workhouse hospitals.

Whilst plans were being made for a National Health Service there was considerable anxiety about the future of St. Gerard’s hospital. When the 1948 National Health act was passed the Regional board agreed to pay hospital expenses and the hospital undertook to take patients according to their disability, not their religion.

In 1998 St. Gerard’s Hospital closed.

And because i always forget to take externals, here's one i found on the internet.
Two patients enjoying the air outside the hospital of St Gerards, at Coleshill. 1917

Anyway, on with the pics:
