    "The Middlesex Colony, begun in 1929, was opened on 20th May, 1936, by the Rt. Hon. Sir Kingsley Wood, M.P. Minister of Health. The Colony is intended for mental defectives who are socially inadaptable in the community, or who are neglected or without visible means of support. Male defectives who are capable of being employed are provided with suitable agricultural occupations on the land, or at various industrial occupations in the Colony's workshops. Female defectives are suitably employed in the laundry, general kitchen or workrooms. Children who are capable of it are given various simple occupations. The patients live in separate "homes" of the villa or pavilion type. The Administrative Centre, consisting of the main administrative offices, dental and surgical clinics, dispensary, central kitchen, reception hall, workshops, laundries, &c. has been built on an axial line running north and south, the Colony buildings for male and female being placed east and west around and overlooking playing fields. An isolated site on the south side is allocated for the children's section. The nurses' home is situated immediately to the west of the main administrative offices

    After visiting the derelict wards a few years back, we had a look at the other side

    Some amazing photos! Just paid a visit but aside from the derelict buildings there was a bit too much action going on with the slightly "newer" side of it for a lonesome explorer. Walked into one room to be greeted by a mattress and a coat amongst other bits, so can only assume a few buildings are being squatted, although did see some security presence too. Definitely one for a second accompanied visit though...
