St Mary’s Hospital, Stannington

My 3rd and final visit to St Mary’s – with demolition already there wasn’t much thought. Sadly due to this not much of the main buildings were covered but I had previously documented these last june. St Mary’s opened in 1910 and closed in 1995, the site is in remarkably good condition in comparision to other hospitals that closed around the same time. Probably due to its more remote location and the locals determination to preserve the buildings. Conversion will see most of the external buildings demolished with the main complex and chapel kept for mixed residential, community & business use.
