    our very first asylum and indeed first explore.we first visited the site near halloween time. Knowing full well the history of the high suicide rate here. like amateurs were scared off by banging and shouting.( it was a good spooky night non the less).
    we did find away in after our first visit so took advantage in November.not scared this time we waited for security to go past and entered the burnt out builders project.
    Although a local trip, was a little disappointed to see the building held with braces and stripped to its bare bones. i guess we just got here in the nick of time before the re-developments are done.
    we explored what was safe to explore and gained entry into the water tower. brief history on the place:
    Stafford County Asylum opened in 1818 to accommodate 120 patients. Over the years it expanded and housed around 1000 patients.
    When Cotton Hill Asylum opened in 1854 for private paying patients, the Stafford County Asylum only took 'pauper lunatics'.
    The hospital was transferred to the National Health service in 1948 and and renamed the St George's Hospital. Like so many other asylums , it closed in the mid-1990's. It was attacked by arson in 2010. there are plans to convert the Grade II listed buildings into " 100 distinctive dwellings", and work started in 2008.

    we climbed the rusty old stairs for this one
