    Default Lancaster Moor Lunatic Asylum Lancaster, March 2013.


    The building was designed by asylum architect Thomas Standen (1816) AV Kershaw (1882),
    and opened in July 1816.
    The site covers 47 hectares of land,
    the buildings are a corridor plan with a central tower.
    The roofs are slate and the walls are stone,
    the building is grade 2 listed and closed December 1999.
    The land is owned by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA),
    is part of a 67.8m deal to turn the building into flats with some new homes/houses on the surrounding land.
    This was evident, with scaffolding and heavy equipment on site.

    Very nice.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    It's nice to see some recent photos of this place, must be the best preserved disused asylum left in England.

DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
