    Explore with King Mongoose.

    Aston Lunatic Asylum was built around the Aston Hall estate. It is built in blocks dotted around a 3.2 acre site. Serving Derby, it was bought 1924 and was developed into an asylum opening in the early 1930’s. Was open for 70ish years and closed in 2004. A few years back there was a fire in the swimming pool block which totally destroyed the building.

    Another place that has seen better days, this place has been stripped, smashed, trashed and tagged, but there still some interesting things to see. We came across no less than three different groups of kids around the site, some of which were up to no good. I’ve got a few different shots than Mongoose, so thought I would share these.



    i was looking forward to seeing the main hall
