    Like afew other people I thought this place would be well gone by now so, it was a pleasant surprise to see a recent report showing it was still worth a look. Demolition has indeed started on the site but there is still abit to see. The hall is still there plus some of the lovely peeling paint corridors and a whole host of cool bits and features, Had a good few relaxed hours round here and pretty much covered what is left. Really glad I got to see this, especially as I thought I'd missed it. Visited with Paul 2129.
    HISTORY
    St George’s Park Hospital opened in 1859, as the Northumberland County Pauper Lunatic Asylum. During its first 125 years or so, mental health care in Northumberland was based, largely, in St George’s Hospital. Back in 1859 there were 100 male and 100 female patients. By 1888, as additional hospital buildings were being built, the population had risen to 267 men and 244 women.
    In 1890 the building was renamed the County Mental Hospital and then again in 1937 when the complex became known as St Georges Hospital, the name which was to remain until the sites closure.
    In 2006 St Georges Park opened which is a new modern purpose-built mental health hospital and has since replaced the services formerly offered at the old county asylum.

    I am also in Northumberland for a holiday, could you possibly share the address (by PM if necessary) as I can't seem to find it. Also, do you have any tips for avoiding security etc

    Go and look....it certainly wasn't difficult a few months ago..whether that has changed is anyone's guess.

    Hop the front gate, security aren't that on the ball but they've stepped up recently.
    The only thing that's changed is what's still standing...was speaking to secca after being caught last month and apparently the main hall and admin block were due to come down within the next 3 weeks (supposedly they'll have gone by now).
    Need to get my report up!
