Visited with KooK and non member Lauren.

St Luke’s started a shutdown process in 2007 and finally closed fully to the public on the 22nd of December 2010. Mainly providing Neuro rehabilitation care, associated Occupational therapy, post cardiac disease rehabilitation, a Renal unit and seemingly unending semi stripped out wards.

Based in and around the buildings of a former workhouse, the site is stepped over quite steep level changes. A three storey cruciform of 200m long glazed corridors serve and link the 1960’s blocks to the surrounding Victorian conversions.

Lights, water, heating, medical gases, nurse calls and telephones all still functioning and some security or someone, somewhere in the building but we fortunately didn’t run into them.

The NHS have been very busy removing most of the mechanics of this hospital over some time so not as much as was expected to remain, remained. It had a small mortuary, complete with the little foam neck rests in the body fridges and also a trolley, on which were sheets and a pillow still with “person imprints” still evident (no shots from me but KooK will oblige)

The biggest bugger was that the Kitchen was locked down but appeared fully intact and absolutely fucking massive, also the plant area and the chapel were locked but both offered glimpses of loveliness through vision panels in the doors, which was slightly frustrating.

The 60’s style lighty up signage was reyt nice though and this provided a nice early mooch to our day of goodness out on the W. Yorkshire, Greater Manchester borders.

Hope you like.
