    Arrow Newsham (orphanage) hospital.Aug 09.

    HISTORY
    grade 2 listed building....It was opened in 1874 by the architect sir Alfred Waterhouse on behalf of the liverpool seamans orphan institution to provide a place for children who had lost their families at sea.
    Separate wings for boys & girls but shared facilties,hospital & classrooms.

    All orphans were taught reading & writing in addition girls learnt knitting & needlework & the boys were instructed in carpentry.

    During ww2 orphans were evacuated to Frankby,Wirral but returned to Newsham in 1948.
    The orphange 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.
    The hospital eventually closed in 1988 & the site has been derelict ever since,gradually falling victim to the elements & vandalism.
