Rossendale general hospital

Turned up here some time at the start of last year with Snowdudejohn, it was a relaxing walk around trying to find access as there was no security on site for some reason(that's changed now). found are way in with no problem, its quite trashed inside and very much empty. theres the odd few things left around and it was an easy relaxing explore with it being a glorious sunny day last thing i wanted was to be exerting myself! :)

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.

having a well earned rest!

then after exiting the main building and carrying on looking at some of the outer buildings at the relaxed pace the day had been so far, i only went and impaled myself on a metal rod that ripped my t-shirt and me on my chest(still carrying a scare from it) we only then found a door open to the morgue! which was nice.

coming out the closet?!? :)  lol
