Boosbeck Road in Skelton Green

Boosbeck Road in Skelton Green

The road today is usually lined to the right with parked vehicles, but the former ironstone miner’s hospital (now a nursing home) still stands at the left of this scene. Margaret Bruce tells us: ”The old Miners’ Hospital on the left of this image was at some point divided into two residences (not sure of the date when this happened). It has certainly been two residences from 1957 to the present day (2016). One residence has access from Manless Terrace only (The Bungalow), while the other part of the house has access from both Manless Terrace and Boosbeck Road.” Mary Jones tells us: ”I’m almost certain this building, or part of it, was used as a surgery by Doctor Rooney in the late 1950s.”

    I’m almost certain this building, or part of it, was used as a surgery by Doctor Rooney in the late 1950s.
