Rosehill, Northernden Rosehill, Northernden, Manchester Operation Cleopatra. Allegations were made against staff at Rosehill in Northenden, Broome House in Didsbury and Mobberley Boys School in Knutsford.This care home was investigated as part of Operation Cleopatra, an investigation by Greater Manchester Police launched in April 1997 into 66 carehomes. Ellerslie in Altrincham and Lynwood, Seymour Road Children’s Home were also implicated.

The now derelict Rosehill will be featured in a TV documentary this weekend about historic buildings.

But former residents of Rosehill are bringining a court case against Manchester City Council over abuse they claim they suffered during the 1950s to the 1980s.

In all 85 alleged victims have united to sue the council for compensation.

And solicitors acting for the group believe there are even more victims who could come forward to support the claim.

The new action is based on police evidence gathered during Operation Cleopatra – an investigation into child abuse at care homes across Greater Manchester.

Peter Garsden of Abney, Garsden and Mc Donald solicitors, who are dealing with the case, said: “The police investigated 350 complaints of abuse, and these are just the people they know about.” “We have had many people come forward who have not been to the police and I have no doubt there are many more out there.” “Various complaints were made by children at the time but they were ignored.

It was certainly a brutal regime and children were treated appallingly.

When Greater Manchester Police launched Operation Cleopatra, 350 people gave evidence of physical and sexual abuse at Rosehill.” Two former employees were arrested and taken to court but each case collapsed after it was deemed the men were too ill to stand trial.

A former resident of Rosehill, who did not want to be named, said: “Being given a slap was just like being told off but I remember the first time I got punched really hard, I couldn’t move my arm for two days.” “I was really intimidated by the staff but I never told anyone of the abuse.” The victim told of one carer who he said worked on the night shift and attempted to abuse the boys sexually.

He also said he once witnessed an attack where a boy was hit so hard around the back of the neck that his body went into spasm. The building, a Victorian grade two listed building, built by local philanthropist Absalom Watkins and has since been converted into luxury flats and is to feature on a television programme praising its architecture.
