    West Sussex County Asylum/Graylingwell Hospital
    Also know as Chichester asylum and Summersdale hospital.
    founded in 1894 opened in 1897 and it closed in 2003.
    It is a compact arrow plan layout and the architect was Sir Arthur Blomfield.

    Developers have unveiled their formal plans to knock down most of the site and turn it into 750 new 'eco-homes' and a school and shops.
    Historic buildings such as the water tower, the home of Black Beauty author Anna Sewell, the church and the farm buildings will be refurbished and reused.
    But they want to knock the main hall down and build a new mixed-use community hall. Hopefully if they do end up with permission to develop the site they will keep the hall. It would be very sad to see it knocked down.

    Good luck to the theatre and arts groups that are continuing to fight to save the hall.

    Visited with Speed and Rooks.
