Whittingham Asylum - Ballroom

Building started in 1869 & Opened on 1 April 1873, Closed 1995

 

This is the part of the whole site that I really wanted to visit the most. At one point though I thought we would not be able to get in as the workmen was working right outside, however, we took the gamble and managed to get a few shots before disappearing back into the maze of corridors.

 

At the opposite end of the stage there is a projector room which at the time of visiting I did not know about, gutted…

 

This place must have looked amazing when in use, and I feel it must have been one of the happier places within the whole complex. As you can see there are Christmas decorations still in place on the ceilings and walls.
