    I guess im almost old enough to remember this place open and even came across an escaped patient once walking in the road (long before mobiles) eventually a car stopped with an inboard phone to call for help, post closure i think i first checked the area out in 2007/8 just wandering the exterior we got lucky once or twice on the scaffolding for a closer look at the conversion, i missed out on another chance visit to the hall and a few corridors but finally got to see whats left earlier in the year, although i must stress its totally sealed and best avoided now!

    visited with MD, Goldie87 and others over the years

    I should check out the towers at some point... I heard they were fully locked down though, so might just leave it.

    Also, seeing as every other asylum is in a pretty poor way or non-existent, I'm surprised this hasn't had more traffic. Or am I?

    I read something about this place the other day but couldn't remember where I read it in so decided to do a quick search online. There is a guided ghost hunt being held here in April 2015. Some people will do anything to make money as £59.00 seems quite steep when people have been mooching around for free without the need of a guide/tour and they probably stayed longer than the tour will be.

    More information can be found here.
