OK, as I've just registered on the site I thought I'd better get something up sharpish :)

A lot of my explores are on the tourist trail so thought I'd dig out something which has not see a lot of traffic. This place started out as a private mental asylum in 1813. In the early 1850's it was one of the larger asylums in the UK with about 700 beds (but surprised when I read this as I thought it was quite a small site :). Between 1850 and 1870 the asylum accepted criminal lunatics, prior to the establishment of Broadmoor. Throughout its history it received pauper lunatics from local authority asylums all over the country, and particularly London.

Explored last year with CyberHouse and FernBank.

(just in case someone asks, the Light beams in shot 5 are not photo-shopped)

Wow, thats smashing, I've not seen that one before. I love those light beams, I managed to get some at St Johns.

700 people must have been quite a tight squeeze, I wonder if they kept them sedated.

Nice set chuck Thanks for sharing :D

many thanks all.

Shush - I guess this site must have been much bigger in the past and spread over a number of buildings (700 are a lot of beds)!!
