Hospital R Revisit October 2012 (Chair Fetish)

Author cloakedup - Last updated: 16.11.2012

The former Rossendale Hospital is a beautiful building built from local stone. The historic frontage of the former hospital is a local landmark and is both culturally and historically significant.
The building was originally erected as a “poor house” or “work house”. There is some interesting information about the building and its former inhabitants at this website.

In 1953 Orchard House, which opened in 1939 as an admissions Unit, was in fact a separate hospital. In contrast to the custodial approach of the main hospital it was run as an open hospital.

At the time of my visit it was quite clear that the demo team had been there in full force, with 90% of the former hospital being reduced to nothing.
