    Well documented by our Swedish comrades, but since moving here i had to go for a look myself, i guess it has deteriorated more since the reports from Benkar and Femaxer , Visited with DHX, funplace access over a cirka 5m wall, but fun was had, specially when we thought someone was nicking our access method.... really couldnt think of an easy way out without it.

    History

    Säters hospital opended in 1912, there were 37 buildings and space for 830 mentally ill patients.

    The "permanent/closed pavilion" was created for particularly challenging patients from all over the country (Sweden). There was room for 27 patients who were cared for by 16 nurses. The term "permanent/closed pavilion" meant that it was escape proof, including barred windows and walled exercise yards. In addition, there was increased surveillance.

    1980: The Swedish mental hospitals begin to close down. The term "permanent/closed pavilion" is changed to "special section". 1989: Säters permanent pavilion/special section was closed down.
