The June issue has an article about asylum websites and suggests countyasylums.com for photos of asylum buildings across the UK but this appearts to be a US site. Is there a UK equivalent?

Hi
You managed better than I did, I could even get the page through IE.
Have you tried the following site.
http://studymore.org.uk/4_13_ta.htm
Peter's website is also very interesting.

Sorry about that. If the asylum is now derelict you might find it on this forum which I rather like...
http://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/main/fo ... y.php?f=62

and this photographs are amazing

but for general usefulness I always turn to Peter Higginbotham's site www.workhouses.org

Have a great weekend everyone!
