re Runshaw hall
#1
I lived with the brothers of Charity in Runshaw Hall from feb 1945 until Feb 1946.
The hall had its own Chapel and the priests came daily from leyland for the Services . At that time these were members of the benedictine order.
The Brothers cared for the mentally ill and the patients lived in the stable block away from the main house.
Initially there were only 3 brothers at the hall, but an extra brother came when I lived there as I was being trained by them and I remained there for 13 months in all
As I remember , none of the patients seemed to be in any way dangerous or disturbing , and I myself took them for choir practice before the services, and never had any problems.
It is interesting to hear what has become of the hall since then
