Having visited West Park around 15 times over an 18 month period, I was fairly used to seeing artefacts laying about, toys in the children’s ward, beds and chairs etc. However it’s shocking to see that documents and logs with patients names still left in place. Some a little disturbing making the casual visitor realise that the hospital was indeed an asylum and that there were people who were very sick there. I can only hope that these were left by accident.

I would hate to know that my relatives illnesses were left discarded for all to see.
