    This place has somehow stayed relatively under the radar for a lot of people. The place is now under demolition sadly, some of the best bits still remain though I'm not sure how far along it is now.

    A while ago the older building was converted and a lot of the outbuildings demolished. Inside the converted bit is the chapel that has been pretty much untouched since it closed, but I've not managed to get inside yet.

    A tiny bit of history:

    The Leicester Borough Lunatic Asylum was opened on 2nd September 1869. By 1912 the hospital substituted "Mental Hospital" for "Lunatic Asylum" as "lunatic" was gaining obsolescence in referring to mental health. The present name "Towers Hospital" was acquired in early 1947. It closed its beds in 2000 and total closure was confirmed in 2013.

    I thought this place was a pile of bricks and had been for years.
