    Hi, Went there Sunday (17/01/10) main white building is in a real sorry state, very dark, damp, slippery and rotten inside, we did want to go upstairs but the floors look to rotten so did not risk it. Went down to the cellar, not much down there but there is a tunnel that goes out under the grounds, will explore that on our next visit.
    The Children’s Hospital (the sixties looking Building) has been completely striped of everything except asbestos, it is just a shell so be careful.
    We had a great time.

    I went there today! Absolutely brilliant, like most of the abandoned asylums, very mournful places to visit, very humbling.

    its amazing how different things are now how people are treated compared to the old days.I work with people with learning disabilitys.If people were more educated on the matter they wouldn’t be treated the way they are when out in public they are beautiful people so loving.I hate to think what was done to them how they lived how they were treated in these old asylems and institutions i have been told from them and its not pleasent.Some people were only there because of being orphend or mothers out of wed lock but were treated in the same way as anyone else living there.I’m glad we have moved on and still a lot of work needs to be done till society finally fully accepts them but we will get there.I plan to check out the grange soon.

      First of all the guy that referred to the place a s being full of nutters. Think about things before you make a comment on something you know nothing about.
      My cousin was there during the sixtys. Every sunday we would visit our Pat. Pat was mentally damaged at birth ie lack of oxygen. Her mother died when Pat was three. Her father worked in Africa and was unable to look after her. When ever we visited pat she was always happy. I can see her now skipping across the lawn to see us when we arrived. She would have been about 30 in those days but her mental age was probably about 12.
      So she wasnt a nutter, she was just a poor kid with problems through no fault of her own.
