This Former Lunatic Asylum and workhouse. The former workhouse which provided a variety of powers including the operation of a workhouse for the elderly, infirm and children.

Okay - let's try and sort this out pre 1948 - it was a general Poor Law establishment known colloquially as a work house. After 1948 it was a NHS mental hospital - it says so in the National archives link - such a mental hospital is often referred to as an asylum even if documents refer to it as a mental hospital. From Dictionary.com Asylum = (especially formerly) an institution for the maintenance and care of the mentally ill, orphans, or other persons requiring specialized assistance. I think you are both correct in your interpretation of mental hospital viz asylum

No really it wasn’t an asylum. The word asylum was generally dropped from all of the County Asylums in the early 1900s - typically around 1910.

That doesn't mean the locals didn't refer to it as an asylum, even though I totally agree with your comment
