Alder Hey Children’s Hospital

History of Alder Hey Children’s Hospital

The abandoned Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool was originally intended to be a workhouse the for insane. Despite being the original intent of the site when the land was purchased by the Board of Poor Law Guardians, plans changed and the Hospital first opened its doors in 1914 as a military hospital during the First World War. The Hospital finally closed it’s doors in 2015, a few days before our first visit, the report for which can be found here: Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Liverpool – October 2015

Our Visit

Our second visit here was a little more relaxed than the first, the buildings, now having been disused for more than a year, were obviously a little less busy and more of the side corridors were also now open. We found a few spots that we had missed the first time around, however it was a shame to find that the access to the theatres had been blocked off with the rumours being that all the equipment had been stripped out following our first trip here. This time we visited the pool and chapel and also took a look in one of the other buildings on site which had a padded room inside it. Enjoy the photos:
