    St George’s Park Hospital opened in 1859, as the Northumberland County Pauper Lunatic Asylum. During its first 125 years or so, mental health care in Northumberland was based, largely, in St George’s Hospital. Since 1985 however, services have been increasingly focused and provided in community settings. The pace of change has quickened significantly, leading not only to a reduction in patient numbers, but in changes to the provision of hospital accommodation.

    Back in 1859 there were 100 male and 100 female patients. By 1888, with additional hospital buildings being built, the population had risen to 267 men and 244 women and in 1890 the Asylum was renamed the County Mental Hospital. The name St George’s Hospital was adopted in 1937.

    Much of the original St George’s Hospital site has now been sold to English Partnerships for future housing and business developments. There is now a new purpose-built facility called St George’s Park, located within the grounds of the old St George’s Hospital.

    St George's closed down in 1995.

    Any questions just ask.

    It's a great site; did this many years ago. The eagle above the door is new! Why'd you post it here though?

    Funny i thought it was a Raven when I was there? Must be my eyes ;)

    You need to post your image link tags and not thumbnails. Was also going to say it should be in Asylum & Hospitals but as you failed to actually show anything apart from the Hall & some Graff' I'm not sure where it should go (although I have an idea ;) it doesn't actually form much of a report especially from a place this size with all its opportunities for some interesting pictures
