When there are leaves on the surrounding trees, the closest decent view of the disused hospital's central tower is from the Haverbreaks (private, but not quite gated) estate.
As I mentioned last year, the 'Royal Albert Asylum for Idiots and Imbeciles of the Northern Counties' (yes, really) was built in 1870 using public donations. The tower, a local landmark, is the result of a £5000 donation from Sir Titus Salt, himself globally famous for his 'holistic' industrial community, Saltaire, in Yorkshire.
