F is for Flint Street

Flint Street is off Shaw Heath. On the left is Our Lady and the Apostles Social Club. On the right are buildings previously belonging to St Thomas' Hospital. In the background is part of Stockport College.

This view is looking into the grounds of the former hospital, originally a workhouse.

For more information about it see the post Shadows outside the workhouse which shows it from the other side.

A contribution to ABC Wednesday.


  1. From workhouse to hospital seems to have been quite common story but perhaps its unusual for it still to be in place (although derelict). The old site of ours locally is covered with houses.

  2. Looks rather run down, but maybe it can be renovated.
