Asylum Inside the Pauper Lunatic Asylums (Paperback)

Mark Davis


Hidden away in remote locations across the UK, long-forgotten and derelict buildings once used to incarcerate people thought to be 'insane', the Pauper Lunatics, can be found. Institutions of this sort include Stanley Royd Hospital, Wakefield; Cane Hill Hospital, Croydon; West Park Hospital, Epsom; Littlemore Asylum, Oxfordshire; St George's County Asylum, Stafford; Hellingly, East Sussex. In this unique selection of photographs, photographer and author Mark Davis takes the reader through the eerie lost hallways and rooms that were once used to 'treat' the mentally ill. The deserted and decaying establishments are in many ways a time warp, forgotten and left alone, until now.
