The Old Whitby Psychiatric Hospital was constructed in 1917 and closed down in 1996. It was a forerunner in mental hospitals with its interconnected buildings and home-like buildings for the patients. Supposedly it is full of wandering spirits from all the strange conditions and suicides. Yikes.
Horace and I arrived at the site but unfortunately most of the buildings have been torn down to be redeveloped into residential homes. We managed to sneak into the two remaining ‘cottages’ for a quick look.
Which is safer, the area where the ceiling is still intact or had fallen down?
The exterior of Building No.12. The basement was completely flooded.
The interior of one building was completely coated with a white coat, perhaps to keep the walls from decaying?
Here are some images of the main complex taken in 2005:
