Don't know the area, but found a hospital listed at Barnes House. Is this the building?

Thanks tsavo, it could well be the building in question. I don't recall ever seeing it, but it looks like this could have been a hospital type building.

The reason I asked about it was I was born there in 1964, and was a little curious to find out where it was and what it looked like.

HI. sorry but the building in the picture is actually Barnes Hall at Burncross, Chapeltown. For years it was owned and lived in by the Smith family (Wake, Smith & Company - solicitors). It is still a private residence. When I was a child, my grandparents used to live about 3 minutes walk from the old Hallamshire Maternity Hospital in Chapeltown. It was in the Birch Avenue area, which is at the rear of Chapeltown Baths in Burncross Road. I believe it is now a residential home. I shall be over there in a couple of days time, so I will have a look and let you know. It is easy enough to find - providing of course, it is still there. When the (Royal) Hallamshire Hospital opened, it changed its name to Chapeltown Maternity Hospital.

Thanks echo

Me again. I went over Chapeltown yesterday. Sadly, the old Hallamshire Maternity Hospital has been pulled down. If you want to see where it was - Google Earth 'Steven Crescent, Chapeltown'. The site is now all private houses. However, Chapeltown and High Green Archive Centre must have a photo of it. It's worth trying them. I have seen a pic somewhere and if I come across it again, I shall get back to you.
