Severalls Asylum – Myland Court

Went back to Severalls. The last visit barely scratched the surface! Also took my tripod this time – cue better pictures inside.

Or so I imagined.

Sadly we didn’t get to the main complex, so we settled on exploring Myland Court. In the past this building housed a mother & baby unit, an occupational therapy department, and an E.C.T clinic..

The Building

It’s very well boarded up, and I foolishly only took one photo of the outside.

Halls

There’s something quite eerie about empty halls. These are quite small, but I bet they’ve seen a huge number of patients in their time…

Rooms

The room with the swingy doors is the ECT clinic.

Canteen & Kitchen

Obviously patients and staff would need to eat. This is where the food was made…
