Today is my day for Abandoned Nuthouses

Apparently the Morpeth Lunatic asylum (and poorhouse) I mentioned in the viking litter thread is now abandoned and derelict. Carruthers sent me a link to some images:

And just now I looked up the imposing Kay Beard building I now chauffeur my car-crashing son past every day ....it's part of the locally infamous Eloise Lunatic Asylum and Poorhouse, also abandoned and derelict:

Is the universe trying to tell me something?

It's not welcoming you to the Hotel California, anyhow.

The asylum at Bangour is abandoned and derelict too - and yet it's a wonderful place to visit, like going back in time. I think I may have posted some photos here a while back and it is a bit more crumbling (the church excepted) than in the pictures at this link:

oops it was the expensive sheepdog thread, not the viking litter one. Both from the area I spent a year in as a child. Sorry if I misled anybody

Morpeth Asylum seems to have moved on from dereliction to demolition.

As is often the case with these buildings more modern facilities have been built in the grounds and the old site goes on to better things.

Stone Asylum, just west of Aylesbury, was renamed St John's Hospital in 1948, although my grandmother always referred to it as the asylum.

It was closed in 1991 and redeveloped as housing. The only sign of its ever having been there is the hospital chapel which is a listed building.
