A good find Bert. Most interesting. It refers to Thingwall and Burntwood Santoria. (p.39)

Where is/was Burntwood Sanatorium ??

Not sure Pinz, could do with a map up, around 1923.

There used to be a Sanitorium out Clatterbridge way I think. Maybe that was a later one. The Hospital there now may have replaced it. Got faint memories of it. TB sufferers used to be sent there, beds outside and all that guff.

Yes, I think that's the one, Bert. "Cheshire Joint Sanitorium, opened 1923"

Didn't 'Burntwood Sanatorium' used to be a destination on the Crosville buses, or am I imagining it?! oldman

Small misprint, top of page 40. I think it should be Grange Mount.

The nearest location to Burntwood, Staffs. that Crosville ran to seems to be Market Drayton.

K61 Nantwich-Market Drayton via Audlem
K62 Nantwich-Market Drayton via Hankelow & Buerton
K63 Nantwich-Market Drayton via Norton-in-Hales

The above bumf is from a Crosville fleet book I have, printed in the 60's.

Are you thinking of the F21 from Birkenhead that had "Cleaver Sanitorium" (Heswall) on the blind ?

The only other one is the A52 Flint-Llangwyfan Sanitorium via Queensferry, Buckley & Mold.

Hope this helps !

I used to work and live in the Psych Unit in Burntwood (in the nurses home I hasten to add). It was called St Matthews. It's been converted into luxury flats now no

You're right! That was the one!

Well, it was a long time ago!
