During the Mental Awareness week, there couldn’t be any other subject but a Mental Hospital. Crow wood Hospital was both a mental hospital and an isolation hospital over the years. Although few images are now available this hospital must have been in the middle of the countryside with views to the ever enlarging industrial and chemical works in Widnes
This is a Moku Hanga watercolour Print and Wood Engraving.
At the end of Mental Awareness Week and at a time when we are all isolating with the Covid-19 pandemic lets give thanks for the better hospital's we now have and the brilliant Doctors and Nurses that take care of all their patients.
