Well what is it? Part hospital, part prison, with an amazing history and inmate list. The buildings have a bit of decay inline with the stripped lead on the rooftops.

Sorry in advance for the load of pictures, some of which you will have seen before, some of it not I hope...

Did someone mention personal details? Prison staff and nursing strikes. Hundreds of day releases, Mental Health Tribunals, the list is endless...

They were all great finds, we were in there for hours.

Then, mintage. Old ledgers...

Probably an average of 5 admissions a day...
