    Default St Crispins - "The Clock Tower"


    Last time I was here i never got to climb up the tower, due to some mindless kids smashing things up and the police turning up. I no theres not much to see in the tower but it was something i wanted to do, just to have a look for myself really and so glad i did as you get some lovely views of just what is left on site.

    I visited with Rubex, who kindly took the last photo

    St Crispins was a large psychiatric hospital on the outskirts Northampton and established in 1876 as the Berrywood Asylum and closed in 1995.

    On with the photos




















    thanks for looking

    The boiler rooms are quite photogenic as well. Me & heights don't mix so up the tower was never an option but I can't understand why I have only ever seen inside the clock face on one report. Is that inaccessible now?
    Live and let live
