First opening its doors in 1828, the James Murray Lunatic Asylum is an astounding building. Over the decades, the asylum was expanded as it succeeded as an establishment. In 1948 it became part of the NHS, however by the 80s, such a large building was no longer needed and it slowly went into decline. In 2012 a modern hospital facility opened on the grounds, making the original building redundant. In 2020, plans for converting the building for residential use was approved and now scaffolding is up meaning work will commence soon on this truly beautiful but slightly haunting building

The explore was great, I'd really wanted to see the library, theatre and central atrium for myself as they just looked beautiful to me. Entrance has been made a bit easier (in my opinion) with the scaffolding acting as ladders. Halfway through I heard scrabbling about and nearly s**t myself haha! Turns out it was a family scrambling through a window, had a good laugh about it and they went off on their way too. Fantastic day out all in all!

I walked round this a couple of years ago but couldn't see a way in, very tightly boarded up, at least at ground level. I've been in the partially burned out building nearby though a few years ago, don't know if its still accessible, think security has been ramped up a bit since then.

The other building isn't quite fully accessible but the main hospital is pretty easy at the moment to be honest. Well worth going back if you have a free day before they start the full conversion! There was no staff walking the site and no alarm went off while I was there :)
