The well known clock tower at Trafford General belongs to the oldest part of the hospital complex.


It has
been over the years, a very familiar sight to all local residents.

 

Over recent years, the clock tower which by the way used to house water tanks, has been under constant threat of demolition.

 

It would indeed  be a shame to lose this reassuring landmark in the name of progress.

 

I can remember as a 4 or 5 year old boy, walking into the hospital grounds to visit my mother who was very sick at the time

with septicaemia.

 

In those days of course, there were no buildings in front of what was then the impressive  main entrance, with its clock tower looming high above.

 

If you would like to walk in my footsteps and see what I saw as a young boy check out this old picture of Trafford General when it used to be called DAVYHULME PARK HOSPITAL

 

The other thing that sticks in my mind from those days was the sun rooms for the patients to sit in during nice weather.

 

I seem to remember lots of small window panes set into wrought iron window frames that were painted dark green.

 

Thanks to the wonderful care that my mother received at the dedicated hands of doctors and nurses of yesteryear, she was able to make a full recovery to health and went on to live a long and productive life, living into her mid-eighties.

 

So a BIG belated THANK YOU to Davyhulme Park Hospital and all who serve in our fabulous NHS.
