Norfolk Explorer posted a topic in Hospitals & AsylumsI decided to have a swing by here as it had been a while... In fact a long long time as I hate the place as it was photos I took here that when I plugged the camera into the computer it killed the computer along with a few years of family, holiday and exploring pictures and it was long before I knew how important it was to back up your files etc etc etc. I had been past it a good few times while working and knew exactly what was going on with the demo of the site. I also failed another time to get in but was not fussed as I knew I had seen the good bits and they were slowly vanishing. But I went out with the camera with clareexplores to have a little look at what was left now that the builders have gone...... Well there is not much too see now.. A long corridor with a few rooms and now way to access the other floors and the morgue is all that remains. History The Norfolk Lunatic Asylum was situated in Yarmouth Road, Thorpe St Andrew near Norwich. Opened in April 1814 and closed in 1998 and slowly bit by bit the site has been turned into completely over priced houses on one side of the road and over the other the old tower now just sits all on its own 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
