    Default Billinge Hospital. May 2015


    Well next up in the "Judderman slightly gets his ass into gear and edits shoots stretching back several years in Alphabetical order" series (catchy title eh ?), we are still on B so I present Billinge hospital (what little remained at time of our visit).

    Billinge Hospital, was originally a workhouse, founded in 1837 as Wigan Poor Law Union, later a maternity hospital and finally closing in 2004, come 2015 the hospital was been demolished bar one building - and this is it.

    Zero reports, zero participation and then a PM asking for info tends to offend - I delete such PM's so don't waste your time.

    I really enjoy your reports, a nice mix of a bit of history, EXTERNALS (so often people forget), and interesting bits.

    I'm looking forward to C-Z haha. :)

    Well done! For me the inclusion of one or two external shots makes for a complete and fully rounded report. Obviously the author of a report can do what they like, but the inclusion of the external puts, what otherwise invariably turn out to be a trip through never ending four walls, into full context for an 'armchair' follower like me. Having the wife's relatives living in that area, we know this place from its better days!
