Harperbury was built as a specialised Mental Health / Learning Disability hospital in the period between the first and second world wars, referred to at the time as either an ‘asylum’ or a ‘colony’. At it’s height the place had over 200 staff and over 1,500 patients, for a full historical account of the place please read the excellent History of Harperbury Hospital which goes into quite some depth. The site is quite large but despite those stats the site doesn’t feel like it has the scale of somewhere like Nocton Hospital, partly because many of the buildings are at least 2-storey and the buildings are also quite close together.
Visited with Natevansate & LiamCH, this is probably the one hospital/asylum that did nothing for me, worth seeing yes, but totally uninspiring...........on with the photos all taken on my Voigtlander Vitomatic II CS on Fuji Neopan 100.

Yeah I found that. No character, just empty rooms.

Some nice pictures though. What's going on with demolition? Last time I went there were bulldozers around and one of the buildings had been knocked down.

Yeah I went sometime last year and they'd knocked quite a lot down, surprised it's still there.
