    Default Leicestershire and Rutland County Lunatic Asylum carlton hayes...1904 part 1 and 2


    The hospital was built in 1904 as the County Lunatic Asylum to the designs of S.P. Pick, an accomplished and prolific Leicester architect working in a vaguely Art Nouveau manner. It finally closed in 1996 when the site was purchased by Alliance and Leicester for their new headquarters.
    As well as serving the needs of over 900 patients at any one time it also provided both paid and voluntary employment for many local residents. The hospital also had a active social scene with thriving badminton, bowling and cricket clubs.

    Bet that laundry was state of the art at the time! Love seeing old pics of places. Always interesting to see what nurses used to wear also!
