    Visited with Speed and Rooks.

    Rooks first pointed this place out to me over a year ago when we were in the area to explore Littlebrook B Powerstation.

    When you get close the first thing you see is the gorgeous water tower that reminds me a little bit of a castle.

    A bit of info on Stonehouse.

    Designed by James Bunstone Bunning.

    Opened in 1866 altho later additions were made.

    From 1892, private patients were admitted.

    From 1924 known as the City of London Mental Hospital.

    In 1948 the hospital was transferred to the Minister of Health under the National Health Service Act 1946.

    Among its most famous patients was the poet and composer Ivor Gurney, who resided there from 1922 until his death in 1937.

    We got up the water tower but all the mobile phone masts blocked most of the view which was a bit shit, The ladder to get to it was never ending.
