Birkenhead Infectious Diseases Hopsital was mentioned in another post but I can't for the life of me find it.

Thought this picture might interest someone as there where supposed to be tunnels underneath it??

The pics shows tollemache road with Flaybrick cemetery on the left and hospital in the middle.

St James Hospital, more commonly called the Fever Hospital by the locals. I was in there when I was 4 with diptheria and when I was recovering can remember riding on the meal delivery truck as a treat. There used to be a sister there who was into horse racing and she tipped me to always bet on a nag called Flag Wallah. I never did but it did win once with Gordon Richards up if I remember corretly.

That is a fantastic photo - i guess the hedges on the right are the boundary of the recreation ground (quarry at that time?). Do you have a date for the photo?

Not sure about the tunnels they where mentioned in another post, maybe the bidston tunnels one. Think it mentioned something about travelling from the hospital to the graveyard to avoid spread of infection?? Could be making that up though!!

Do you know when it closed Bandycoot?? as I think there is a modern housing estate there now?

And photo is dated 1914 and shows a funeral procession of a soldier who was killed in a dormitory in Bebington after the roof collapsed. Also says the hospital was opened in 1894

there is a modern housing estate sitting directly on top of where it used to stand. some of the locals i know call it the nannies estate due to the back of the house's overlooking it. no idea when it was demolished but i'm guessing it was between the 60's to 80's.

Sorry me old, haven't a clue. I left the town in 1958 and only get back now and again. This is a cracking site for exiles. I read through and if there is anything I can recall I just put it on in case it helps someones research or interest.

One thing I do remember is that it used to be called the Nanny Goat Mountains by us kids so that is possibly where the Nannies Estate comes from. Can't remember actually seeing any nanny goats there but it used to have a sort of sandstone escarpment up against the high walls in one part of the boundary. There was a sort of pathway along the Flaybrick Cemetery side and this is where the escarpment was as far as I can remember.

During the 80s part of the hospital was used as a nursing home for the elderly. SO it was the backend of the 80s or early 90s before it was completly knocked down.

I grew up in Moreton but moved to this area 11 years ago. My dad told me there was a hospital (where the brand new houses are at the top of mercer road/Flaybrick)that was run by nun`s. My partner also tells me his brother went there but can`t remember what for (70`s) I walk up the nannies regualry and have never noticed anything before except trees etc but will deffo look for noticable signs now i know a bit about the History! Thanx guys!

I have done a lot of research over the years and as far as i can tell there were no tunnels just basements which have been filled and capped before the houses of which is now the oakwood estate where built.There was a small tunnel comming out on the nannygoat to take the dead up to the mortuary rooms at the rear of Flaybrick but this has been filled and bricked over.
The picture at the start of the thread is of a funeral a young soldier who was killed during a building collapse during high winds at the bebington oval.
