This is how it is now. I had a walk past it the other weekend. It's such a shame it's been left to crumble!

Thought I would thank you all for contributing to the thread. A friend and I just happened on the site at the end of a walk. Eric Gehlhaar to be precise, who also worked there for two years - as a psychiatrist. It's a mess as you can see. I spent my time there as an auxiliary, filling in for holidays, mostly on the acute ward, though I visited the locked and other wards occasionally. Wiki has a good entry.
It was shut in 1991 by other friends of mine from NHS days - John Rotchell, David Whalley and David Devlin.
