Me, a friend and my girlfriend, exploring the Normansfield home for the “mentally subnormal” originally built by John Langdon Down in 1868 (the guy who identified Down\’s syndrome) in London, England. We spent about an hour there, but the noises from upstairs (creeks and murmurings – we assumed crack addicts) eventually persuaded us to leave.

    7. reminds me a lot of of our local defunct medical institution Waverly Hills Sanitarium, an old T.B. hospital. Ghost hunters did an episode here a year or two ago. whsmemorial.tripod.com/

    8. 3rd Picture Down in the window:
      What’s more messed up? The fact that it’s there or the fact that it’s the first thing I saw?

    11. Since when do mental homes charge for food? This is a hotel or something.

    12. @bstaples: the fact that the dude is holding a mini light saber, and all the white stains on the floor and window could be a result to a massive orgy.

    16. @Sticky: You know FreakAngels! You just got, at least 42 times cooler. I’m kinda hesitating to give you this many points, you’re all the way up already.

      Since lying on the internet is futile, I’m not going to act like I do. The glowing red sky and ash clouds billowing above came straight from my own imagination, so my current score should be divided by the meaning of life. Which is to say, of course, 42.

    18. My only guess to why there’s a priced menu is that it was a cafeteria for visitors and/or staff… Unfortunately the one place I didn’t get any good pictures of were the basement: a few dozen rooms, bare concrete, exposed piping (most of it leaking now) – but all the rooms down there were numbered, so I can only assume they were used as rooms for the inmates.

      I must do a return trip.

    22. @dieAntagonista: yes i know freakangels i read every episode from since the beginning where kk woke up sleeping with the boy all the way up to when they found over 100 refugees and decided to take them in to help them. I’m just patiently waiting for the next issue about the murder of one of the refugees. and how medical supplies are diminishing.
