First time I’ve been able to get out properly for ages! Explore with Miz Firestorm & a non member.
This was somewhere I’ve wanted to see for a while, and it did not disappoint. We spent hours on site exploring the various buildings; there are quite a few of them on the Father Hudson Society complex. I will get the rest of my snaps up when I’ve sorted through ‘em.
Big thanks to Miz Firestorm for access and info.


St Gerard’s Orthopaedic Hospital was part of Father Hudson's Society buildings across the UK. It provided services for locals and the neighbouring boys school, along with care for orphaned children of early 1900's. The chain of society buildings started to close in the 1980's, due to changes in NHS funding and how orphaned children were dealt with as a whole. St Gerard's closed in 1988.
