    Visited very very early hours with The Stig, H1971 and Skapunkmetalskater.

    The Northumberland County Pauper Lunatic Asylum opened on 16 March 1859. The magnificent Victorian building was built in the Italian style of red brick with stone dressings. Designed by Henry Welsh, it was originally built to accommodate about 200 male and female patients. The apartments on the west side were for female inmates while males were situated on the east. Surrounding the buildings were pleasure and kitchen gardens as well as a stone chapel and brewery.

    By 1888, as additional hospital buildings were being built, the population had risen to 267 men and 244 women and in 1890 the asylum was renamed the County Mental Hospital then in 1937 the name was changed to St. George’s Hospital. By 1956 there were 1,257 patients and overcrowding was a major problem. The number of patients dropped to about 600 by 1985.

    St George's closed in 1995.

    Floors aren't too bad just selected areas. Why not say hello in the introduction section and pop up your report too.
