Apparently, Barnes Hospital in Cheadle, near Manchester, has been transformed into flats ….. Just one problem. The place is reputed to be haunted!
An abandoned hospital that while it was being built uncovered pieces of christian crosses from a possible graveyard. Built in the 1870’s it was meant for the growing numbers of factory workers in and around Manchester. During WW2, it took care of wounded and dying soldiers. The hospital was closed in 1999. It has since topped the list of ‘15 creepiest abandoned places in Britain’ and was the set for Let Sleeping Corpses Lie a 1970s horror movie.
Paranormal activity has often been reported at the site. Nurses who felt they were being watched and the ghosts of nurses still tending to patients. Those who have investigated the hospital have reported strange sounds, moans, bangs, door slammings and other such activity. As the building was being rennovated, workers reported seeing the ghosts of patients in their beds and ‘people’ waling by the windows.
Thirty-Nine apartments now occupy the building….. would you live there???
