History

The hospital, in Shaw Heath, has treated thousands of older people and psychiatric patients on the NHS and was first a workhouse, opening its doors on Christmas Day 1841.

But it has fallen into disrepair and there are now plans to turn its partly listed buildings into a GP super-centre, with the historic clock tower section becoming flats for first-time buyers.

The Victorian workhouse - known locally as 'The Grubber' - was once home to scores of Stockport's poor and unemployed throughout the Victorian era.

And when in 1948 the site became Shaw Heath Hospital, later renamed St Thomas's, some of the older workhouse inmates remained on the site.

St Thomas's finally closed it's doors on the 29th October 2003

The Visit

This site has many tales associated to it detailing live security wielding bricks, dogs, cctv, but on this occasion, the only sign of life was a solitary pigeon patrolling the front door.
