This place has been done a few times recently but as it looked good, so me and Neosea thought we would go have a look see for ourselves, heres a bit of history:

Barnes Hospital, also known as Barnes Convalescent Home, in Cheadle, Greater Manchester, England, Whilst the hospital was constructed in a rural setting, it is now surrounded by roads.
The main building is Grade II listed, and lies on green belt land. A donation of 26,000 for the founding of a new convalescent hospital in Cheadle was made in 1869 by Robert Barnes. Construction of the hospital, named the Barnes Convalescent Home, started in 1871 and was completed in 1875. It was constructed of bricks, the clay for which was provided locally.
During World War II the hospital was used as a convalescent home for wounded soldiers.
The main use for the hospital in its later life was for geriatric care and stroke patients. It closed in September 1999 while Manchester Healthcare Trust was undergoing a 2 million cost cut. The hospital was sold in 2001, and the main building is currently being converted into 42 flats, with the other buildings on the site having been demolished for the construction of 18 houses and 77 more flats. The other flats will be in two blocks. The work will cost 10 million.
The hospital temporarily housed a large group of Kosovan refugees following its closure.
