The building was designed by asylum architect Thomas Standen (1816) AV Kershaw (1882),
and opened in July 1816.
The site covers 47 hectares of land,
the buildings are a corridor plan with a central tower.
The roofs are slate and the walls are stone,
the building is grade 2 listed and closed December 1999.
The land is owned by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA),
is part of a £67.8m deal to turn the building into flats with some new homes/houses on the surrounding land.
This was evident, with scaffolding and heavy equipment on site.
