    Padded cells are few and far between now-a-days, so the opportunity to visit one doesn't present itself very often. So rare in fact, that I should imagine this will be the only padded cell I ever get the opportunity to visit, in situ and outside of a museum.

    This particular padded cell is inside the 'G Block' of the Royal Hospital Haslar - a disused naval hospital on the south coast of England. G Block was established in 1910 as a purpose-built psychiatric unit and was comprised of 2 wards, each with 12 beds. G-Block served as an assessment centre and sailors requiring longer term treatment were transferred to a psychiatric unit at Great Yarmouth. The padded cell was built by Pocock Brothers, a company who were responsible for the creation of a few other similar padded cells around that time. In practice the cell was rarely used.

    Molly stop asking for access or whether these places are still there. All through new posts your comments are popping up. No one will give you access or answer you....you need to do your research and go and look for yourself.
