For years we have searched for the ultimate ghost hunt experience and the abandoned Newsham Park Hospital and Orphanage it the perfect setting. This sprawling Victorian grade II listed building in Liverpool now lies derelict but has been the site of an Orphanage, Hospital and Old Person's Nursing Home during its 138 year history. Boarded up and surrounded by perimeter fencing, we have 99,000 sq ft of terrifying corridors and rooms to explore as we enter this building in search of the ghostly inhabitants that still reside here.
The institution was opened in 1874 as an Orphanage for the education and support of the orphans of British seamen and by 1899 there were 321 children housed here under the harsh supervision of a number of Matrons. Conditions were harsh and cruel, siblings were segregated and "they weren't fussy how they punished you" described one former resident. The First World War brought more residents to the Orphanage and by 1918 almost one thousand orphans were being housed here. The Orphanage eventually closed in 1951 and became Newsham Park hospital which remained in operation until 1988 when it closed down completely, beginning the demise of this spooky building.
The abandoned Hospital has a massive array of spooky rooms, corridors and basements, including a School House, hospital wards, nurses accommodation, Bell Tower, Chapel and Mortuary. There is an instant feeling of uneasiness as you enter and begin to roam this frightening place and you cannot fail sense the torment and of those who belong to its long history. Wheelchairs sit empty in corridors and the mortuary fridges stand empty as a reminder of the lives that passed over in this place, giving this location a unique and frightening atmosphere.
Although the building has laid empty for many years, there have been numerous reports of paranormal activity here from security staff and workmen alike. Distant voices have been heard from within the empty building, shadowy figures have been seen darting down the stairwells and workmen's tools have disappeared only to turn up in a completely different part of the building. Could this be the work of mischievous children from the Orphanage coming forward to make themselves known?
