First report, yey.

Bit 'o history
St Gerard’s Orthopaedic Hospital was part of Father Hudson's Society buildings across the UK. It provided services for locals and the neighbouring boys school, along with care for orphaned kiddies of early to mid 1900's. The chain of society buildings started to close in the 1980's, due to changes in NHS funding and how orphaned children were dealt with as a whole. St Gerard's closed in 1988.

Still plenty to see, lot's of funky curtains, punchy wall colours and leg splints - a good explore in all :) Although it has sadly been invaded by copper-pipe-hunters, so security on the main building has been tightened, enough anti-climb paint to lube a pornset. Went with the intention of nipping into St Edwards Boys School afterwards, but didn't have time to inspect the rather shiny new looking floodlights and cameras..
