Barnes Convalescent Hospital, Cheadle

Visited with Sui and Rookie.
Barnes Hospital, also known as Barnes Convalescent Home, in Cheadle, Greater Manchester, England, is a former hospital.
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.
