    St Mary's has been top of my list for ages, at last along with Chauffeur and Stormtrooper I got to mooch around here.

    A brief history (it's already well documented, but I like this stuff - look away now if you're not fussed):

    Designed by George Hine and Carter Pegg as a 500 capacity asylum for Gateshead Borough, it opened in 1914 and was the last asylum completed by Hine. It was requisitioned by the military for the duration of WW1, in 1927/8 it was modified to provide a sanatorium for TB patients and a nurses home.
    Gateshead merged with neighbouring county boroughs which led to additional blocks, a large admission and treatment hospital and convalescent homes being added in 1939.
    WW2 gave rise to further development; a hutted emergency medical service hospital was added which was converted after the war to house mental patients. Under the NHS limited development and then closures led to the contraction of services into the main buildings, it remained open until 1995.
