This grade 2 listed building was opened in 1876 by the architect Sir Alfred Waterhouse on behalf of the Liverpool Seaman's Orphan Institution to provide a place for children who had lost their families at sea.
Separate wings for boys & girls but shared facilities, hospital & classrooms.
All orphans were taught reading & writing and in addition the girls learnt knitting & needlework and the boys were instructed in carpentry.
During WW2, orphans were evacuated to Frankby, Wirral but returned to Newsham in 1948.
The orphanage closed in 1949, after standing derelict for 2 yrs it was finally purchased by the Ministry of Health and became a hospital in the newly formed NHS and later operated as a rest / nursing home.
The hospital eventually closed in 1988 and the site has been derelict ever since.
This vast haunted place still with the original hospital wards is terrifying from the minute you enter its front doors to the minute you leave.
