A little bit of history:

"In 1886 John North gifted £6,000 to open a convalescent home in memory of his daughter Ida. Chorley and Connon were the Architects, opened 10th May 1888. Robert Arthington financed a second hospital on adjacent site which opened May 1905, and took his name but was mostly referred to as ‘Cookridge’. Ida hospital is the two crescent shaped buildings. The hospital site closed in 2008 and has been left abandoned awaiting demolition ever since."

We only managed one of the 2 buildings but still full of peeley paint, decay, nice colours and a few features.

Visited with my usual crew + a couple of not-on-this-forum types. A good mellow-ish mooch and worth stopping in if in the area.

















Thanks
