Millennium House is a Grade II listed building in Stockport.[2]

History[edit]

The building was initially established as a dispensary in 1792, and then incorporated as an infirmary in 1833.[2] The infirmary was then expanded four times between 1871 and 1926. The building then remained unchanged until its closure in 1996.

The building was listed as Grade II on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest on 10 March 1975.[1]

The building was purchased by the Brentwood Group and renovated into office space, currently in the use of the UK pension service.[3]
