    Talking Lancaster moor Asylum (formerly known as The County Lunatic Asylum) May 2013


    Lancaster moor Asylum (formerly known as The County Lunatic Asylum) May 2013

    During the nineteenth century Lancaster became a Centre for the treatment of mental
    illness, in 1809 it was decided that the proposed County Lunatic Asylum would be built at Lancaster.

    Lancaster Moor Asylum was Lancashire’s first County Lunatic Asylum, opened in 1816,
    extended in 1824 and annexe completed in 1882, and by 1891 it accommodated 1833 patients
    but could hold up to 2400, the building occupies a site comprising an area of about 41 acres.
    The renovation is well on its way with huge piles of rubble piled outside of the main block and
    new windows being fitted almost throughout but still well worth a look .

    Nice relaxed explore with Altdayout after the security dodging of the amusement park.
























    Thanks for looking, always a pleasure :).
    Looking beyond the pictures. :p
