Visited on a Sunny Summers day back in 2009 this was a chance visit and chance explore. I guess it gave a little insight to what asylums were like when open back in the day. Beautifully maintained, cleaned and in small capacity – still in use.
Opened in 1906, it was designed by Alfred J Wood but has a remarkable ‘Hine’ feel to it. It’s is still in operational use despite a scheduled closure target date of 2008.
