    Default St Andrews Asylum, Norwich. August 2012


    Plans for the asylum were announced in 1876. The buildings were to be of ‘somewhat plain, simple and comparatively cheap construction’, later described as ‘a sort of go-between the Asylum and the Workhouse’.
    Designed by the architects Cornish and Gaymer, they were modelled on Metropolitan Asylums Board institutions at Leavesden and Caterham. They comprised a two-storey ‘H’ shape with large and rather barn-like male and female wards linked, or rather separated, by an administrative cross-section, behind which lay a single storey complex of kitchens and staff rooms.
    Costing £33,920, they accommodated 250 patients, two and a half times the original capacity.

    You must have gone shortly after I did. The red chair is exactly where I put it for my shots of it
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    Looks a great place! Fab report:)
    He who binds to himself a joy. Does the winged life destroy.
    But he who kisses the joy as it flies. Lives in eternity's sunrise.
