Cheadle House


Cheadle Royal Hospital is a psychiatric hospital in Heald Green, Greater Manchester, England, built between 1848 and 1849. The main building is Grade II listed.

The hospital was founded at a time when only two other similar institutions existed in England (Bethlem and St Luke's) and was initially located next to the Manchester Infirmary in 1763. It was designed by Richard Lane in the Elizabethan style and it opened as the Manchester Lunatic Hospital in 1766. It had 24 beds when it opened but it had over 100 patients by 1800.
