History

The Workhouse was built in 1836 on the east side of Melton on Thorpe End Road, comprising four wards and spacious yards. It is now St. Mary's Hospital and still serving the local area.
When it was built it cost £6000 and was designed to house three hundred people.According to White's trade directory of 1846, it rarely housed more than half of that number at that time.
The workhouse was somewhere poor people in the area could go. In return for food and clothing they were given work to do. The former workhouse later became St Mary's Hospital. I can't find much in the way of when this place closed down, I am assuming that because the internal doors were marked 2010 that this was about right.

The Explore

Visited with Hamtagger, after checking out something else in the area and it being too light we decided to head on to the next place. Not too far away. Anyway we were literally heading down this road and saw this building. HT immediately pulled in and parked up. A few other cars about so not out of place. Getting our stuff out of the car we glanced round and saw the little mortuary building to the right. Door had been busted in. As it was pointed out to me, one bit of advice I would give is if your desperate for a pic of a mortuary fridge make sure that you don't post pictures online with the glass in the door intact and the door nailed shut and the next lot of pics from inside the place! Massive fail!
On with the explore, we checked out the little mortuary, I wasn't personally interested in the Vagrancy cells to be honest. I had seen it posted online a lot over the last couple of weeks. I was more interested in the hospital.
We ventured round and soon found ourselves inside the hospital itself. Now, we had got a bit confused thinking that this was the Memorial Hospital, after all we had literally just pulled in to the car park not even knowing what it was. We spent a good 3 hours here and if I am blatantly honest I don't see how this place has been missed at all! Situated just 20 yards to the left of the mortuary building, obviously empty and it hadn't yet been reported on?! (Do correct me if I am wrong, I am sure that someone will).
Really nice explore, all the time completely shocked that there wasn't a single bit of Graffiti, nothing had been smashed. It was literally left how it had been and bearing in mind this hospital has been closed at least 5 years. Perfect!
A good few bits to see here, some really nice decay in places too. Still retaining someof it's original workhouse charm too with some of the windows and interior architecture. Right on with the pics!

Still amazed about this place sitting there empty for so long un-mooched. The bath, wooden stairway and corridor shots are my favourites :)

Scotty I think it might have been the old maternity wards before the new bit opened behind it, could be wrong though as I haven't really looked into the history just yet :)

Nicely done young lady :thumbas per usual.

Still on the to-do-list & surprised it"s not been trashed yet TBH

Surely not ;)
