    Default Salisbury hospital, staff buildings


    Wilton Road - The Old Manor site. The Old Manor Hospital site comprises two areas of land, separated by the Wilton Road. By far the largest is that on the south side of the road, which contains three listed buildings and a listed fountain. The part on the north side contains a further two listed buildings, and all the site is within the Salisbury conservation area. In the 1920s and 30s the Old Manor Hospital was, according to one account, the largest private mental hospital in Europe. It was taken over by the state in 1954, at which time it had 672 beds, though this had reduced to 288 beds by 1978

    This report is about the two listed buildings on the north side of the site, I have posted a picture of the actual hospital as it is absolutely stunning, on this particular day I managed to see the two listed buildings ...



    Someone I know used to work in the kitchens at this place and said even then it was the spookiest place she ever had been. The ward for severely affected mental patients was railed so they were secure at all times.

    the listed fountain



    the two listed buildings
