St Georges Asylum - Morpeth

Evening folks, one of my recent explores up north with Borolad, was a nice relaxed wander round once inside and got a few nice photo's on the way round too... We didn't get the whole site covered on this trip as we rolled up fairly late in the day, but we got a decent amount done, skipping ahead to the more interesting bits.

That said, secca did come up close to the building within the perimeter of the green fence to look through windows often, so keep an eye out, and we did find a polystyrene cup filled with coffee, which although was cold hadn't yet had time to evaporate, so someone had been inside very recently, weird!

History

Only brief, most of us have heard it before!

Originally called the Northumberland County Pauper Lunatic Asylum, St Georges was founded in 1853 and opened its doors in 1859. Architect Henry Welch designed a corridor plan layout. The hospital was built at a cost of £58000 and in the end of its first year, saw 154 patients admitted. The Asylum has stood abandoned since 1995...
