You are quite right, there was a hospital beside where New Ferry Baths were (and they were just north of the sewer works).

"Port Sanitary Hospital, New Ferry"

Here are the hospital and the baths, note the old smaller sewage works in 1970.

Heres that screenshot i mentioned.Obviously you know new ferry baths is gone but I marked it on so the older maps look easier to interpret as the quite confusing to a person of my IQ.

Oh and I may sound stupid but can I ask what Sanitory means? Is that something to do with cleanliness or Crazyness?

one would assume that the port sanitary hospital was for treating those who were onboard a ship with infectious disease (TB, smallpox etc) who were being quarantined when they got off.

Judging by its name, could the Port Sanitary Hospital have been used as an isolation hospital for people suffering from infectious diseases who arrived in the Mersey on ships? I think most seaports had such hospitals.
This is almost certainly the same place that years later was definitely used as an isolation hospital for ordinary patients from the surrounding area. I remember it as a green wooden building in open ground behind the baths and I'm sure people were taken there during a smallpox outbreak in New Ferry in the Sixties. In the Seventies, the hospital (which was by then disused) was deliberately destroyed by being burned down to get rid of any possible lingering infection.

Hospital built after 1875 and before 1884 because it didn't appear on the 1875 map (that area was called greenbank, don't know if it was a house or area) and in 1884 the CLARENCE REFORMATORY SCHOOL SHIP had a fire and the kids were temporarily housed in the hospital from January 'til July when they needed the hospital for a Cholera outbreak.

@yoller, yes effectively an isolation hospital, and all the other things you say rings bells as well, thankyou.

Ime not saying there are but if anyone can varify and state facts then I will be happy to admit that there is or there isnt.
But I hope there is.I now believe that there was a "Isolation Hospital" Down there at sometime during the war.And for the sake of getting patience out of danger during bombing raids the cliff next to it would be a perfect spot.
