Built between 1897-1903. It is a Grade II listed building. The building's steel frame structure may have been the first such steel frame in the UK. (all stolen off wiki :) )

Seen as I live in Liverpool I thought I should probably explore something here :lol: Unforunatly for me Liverpool has too much industrial stuff and not enough asylums for my liking :( Anyone in Epsom wanna swap lives? ;)

Visited with The Lady Sleepless and 4737Carlin (thanks for the tour)

Really nice building, both inside and out! I couldn't believe this building has just been sitting there for so long unused but hey we all get to benefit from it so cant complain too much!

I found it hard fighting my hospital obsession, I get bored very easily when not wandering around a hospital but I think we spent about 3 and half hours in here :D

Gonna have to go back on a night I think because the views were fab! We didnt get the best of weather (at least it didnt rain) but would be excellent to see the city lit up on a night!

Wow, what an incredible building! That staircase is amazing...also those lights and the ceiling plaster in the big room. Excellent photos, restless. Good stuff! :)
