Funny - someone's asked that before. Do you work for Wirral Trust? Anything to do with the 60th birthday?

Hi, no. I spent a lot of time in and out of hospitals when I was little and a school project has sparked off a search for memories. I remember the old children's hospital in Birkenhead, but cant remember the site it was on.

Woodchurch road is where the old childrens hospital was. Now the Christian centre or was? Haven't been up that way for a while.

Ward four Victoria Central Hospital 1957 and 1958 personally. It was worse than being in the army with those matrons. They saved my life though, I'll give them that.

It's given me goosebumps looking at the front of the old children's hospital. I remember the waiting area with all the big old teddies set up on a high shelf around the walls.

What about the Wallasey womens hospital on Claremount road? I remember my mother going in there a couple of times. One of those forgotten ones I suppose?

Anyone have a picture of the old hospital that used to be on leasowe road?
I remember going in there when i was younger, we found loads of records of past patients in the attic and were happily reading them with amazement until the police came and turfed us out frown

the place was in the middle of demolition and still had allsorts of wierd things inside, amazing explore, sadly no digital cameras at the time to take photos frown

I remember going in there a couple of times too Ste, my mate lived around the corner at the end of Reeds Lane so we used to go there as summit to do haha! It was mad in that place, but of course we were young at the time and never realised the value of memories after the place had been knocked down...

I have seen some really good photo's in books, in fact I may just be able to recite a write up about the hospital. I was going to some time ago and never got around to it.

I shall have a look for the book today and post some stuff when I find it!

The Liverpool Open Air Hospital for Children, Leasowe



Opened on 2nd July 1914, for the treatment of tuberculosis in children. Beds were on wheels and were pushed outside on the balconies all day (even in winter. The hospital became a general hospital in the 1970s and was closed in the 1980s. It survived for a short while as a Christian Centre caring for the elderly, owned by the Elim Pentecostal Church, but was later demolished.
