    Visited here with wobs92 last week after finally following up our intrigue with the place. It's a really nice little site and we spent a good couple of hours there mooching about often in full view of everyone in the nearby car park. Despite this and the dilapidated security cabin on site we had no issues with any security as there were none to be seen although if you do visit I think there are builders on site from time to time near the main road section so keep your wits about ya.

    Anyways after a quick walk round the perimeter we found our way onto the site with not too much difficulty. The buildings are by and large boarded up but we managed to get into two of them still and I'm pretty sure any agile explorer could get in the larger building towards the main road too. We didn't have the SLR that day so apologies for the picture quality.

    A brief history lesson

    This place started as a private lunatic asylum in Fisherton Anger outside Salisbury around 1813. In 1954, by which time it had become known as the Old Manor Mental Hospital, it ceased to be privately run and was absorbed into the National Health Service. It was then administered by the Knowle (Fareham, Hampshire) Hospital Management Committee. In the 19th century it had been the largest private mental hospital in England, with about 700 beds. It closed in 2003, being partially replaced by Fountain Way - a smaller, modern psych ward on part of the same site

    Thanks for looking

    Not bad that mate.

    You need to obscure the patient's name off that form though. :thumb
