Welcome to my first post. Hope you enjoy.

I went to this abandoned Lunatic Asylum last weekend. Great explore.

There was only one abandoned building remaining and it was creepy. I did a video which can be found here

ACCESS WAS THROUGH AN ACTIVE HOSPITAL SO BE CAREFUL IF YOU GO.

History from Wikipedia.

The hospital was founded in 1763, when only three other similar institutions existed in England, next to the Manchester Infirmary, in what later became Piccadilly Gardens. The building was opened on 26 September 1765. It had room for 22 patients. It cost £1510 to build and equip. By 1773, there were rooms and attendants for 40 patients. In its first 11 years, 361 patients had been admitted. 179 were cured, 99 relieved and 24 died. In 1776, the annual running expenses were £444, or which £83 were wages and gratuities. In 1802, the running costs had increased to £1600. 54 patients were admitted that year.
By 1788, twenty new single rooms had been added and there were facilities for about 60 patients in all. By 1825, the number of patients had reduced from 80 or 90 to 45 because there were now more private asylums for those who could pay, and more county asylums for paupers.
In May 1846, it relocated to a new, 58 acre site in Cheadle, ten miles to the south. The building in Manchester was sold to the trustees of the Manchester Royal Infirmary for 5,000 guineas, and the land belonging to the asylum for £2,700. The patients were accommodated in temporary buildings until the main block was completed in 1850. By purchase or gift, 220 more acres were acquired and additional facilities built.
