My Dad and one of my cousins died on the same ward at this hospital. I find it very moving to see this.

I pass every day and it is like a bomb site. There is no consideration that this was a site to heal people, as they demolish buildings and prepare to build houses.

i feel that this is a great shame to see billinge hospital turned to rubble to make room for houses and not only that billinge played a great part in many peoples lifes it was one of wigans great heritage ,its a great shame to have seen this gone.
