Newsham Park Hospital
Now derelict, Newsham Park Hospital is a grade II listed building with a reputation of being haunted. According to ‘The top 10 most haunted places in Liverpool’ by Jade Pike (Liverpool Echo 17/06/2015), ‘Now abandoned, the building was once an orphanage dating back to the Victorian era. It then later served as a medical hospital and a mental asylum before closing in 1997. How it’s haunted: Where do we start! Reports go way back to when a female nurse complained of ‘strange’ sightings whilst working with patients at the hospital… She was later found dead on one of the wards. Patients at the hospital also constantly mentioned ‘children’ and spoke of people who weren’t there. Recent visitors have reported sightings of ghosts and hearing disembodied voices at the cavernous building. Broken beds, anti-suicide grilles and wheelchairs are all still sat in decaying rooms and corridors.
