Arrow Rossendale General Hospital, Lancashire - May 2010 - 31-05-2010, 01:23



Rossendale General Hospital started life as a workhouse in 1868.
inmates of all ages mostly took part in hand weaving.






it changed into the Rossendale Hospital in the 1930s.
it was further extended with an annexe to the east.
some parts of the hospital are still live.
the hospital radio was brought to a close not too long ago.
the hospital is now just used for day patients.
a new health hub in Rawtenstall might just take over from the hospital altogether.

Thanks Dubs

from seeing the exterior, you expect a bit more inside than what there was...
just a central corridor with little rooms on either side.
felt more care home than hospital.

i like this too, there is alot of work going on at hope hospital (now salford royle) at the moment, some of the oldest parts of the hospital look like they are about to be knocked down, which i feel is a disgrace, however, it might be worth a look if you havn't already, f you fancy a look one night let me know as i wouldn't mind coming along.

I ve reccied it quite a bit recently and security is very tight so it might be that its not possible from the outside, bt i know the hospital quite well and i think it may be possible from inside!

let me know if your interested?

Nice work, sadly was locked up tight when I paid a visit back in February!

And not to mention the security sat in their cars, I'm assuming it's a walk in now?
