Arrow ARCHIVE: Barnes Convalescent Hospital, Cheadle - Dec 09 - 15-12-2009, 18:05

Visited with Rookie and OneByOne.

Read up about this place in the early hours after visiting The Old St Marys & Royal Manchester Childrens Hospital, OneByOne is putting a report up as soon as.

We were there as the sun was setting and left with out checking the whole site because we were then in darkness, We have a revisit planned

History;

Barnes Hospital, also known as Barnes Convalescent Home, in Cheadle, Greater Manchester, England, is a former hospital. It is located near to the A34 road and is in the middle of the complex interchange between the A34, M60 motorway and M56 motorway. Whilst the hospital was constructed in a rural setting, it is now surrounded by roads. The main building is Grade II listed, and lies on green belt land.

A donation of 26,000 for the founding of a new convalescent hospital in Cheadle was made in 1869 by Robert Barnes. Construction of the hospital, named the Barnes Convalescent Home, started in 1871 and was completed in 1875. It was constructed of bricks, the clay for which was provided locally.

During World War II the hospital was used as a convalescent home for wounded soldiers. The main use for the hospital in its later life was for geriatric care and stroke patients.

It closed in September 1999 while Manchester Healthcare Trust was undergoing a 2 million cost cut. It was also featured on Most Haunted Live in September 2005.
