Designed by architect Thomas Full James, building started in 1844 and completed in 1848. Once a hospital for people with psychiatric illnesses, at its maximum capacity it could house 200 patients.
The building is currently in a really sorry state and in many places getting quite dangerous.
The building is falling apart and we had to be very careful of what was above. In most areas you can see the collapsing floor above you and trying to go up stairs should be avoided.
