Tucked away in the middle of nowhere, undisturbed and forgotten, stands Preistwood Chapel. To this date I am still unable to find any information on this location so all I can say is it’s a stunning undisturbed location, great for a half hour explore… between the hour spent locating it and finding the way back out of course.
The Middlesex County Asylum was founded in 1898 with the hospital designed in a country estate style by architect Rowland Plumbe in 1900, who also rebuilt, to his designs, the Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel in 1897.
Harperbury was opened in 1928, converted from a few aircraft hangers, to care for both adult and children with learning difficulties and sever epileptics. After the formation of the NHS Trust the hospital amalgamated with and moved to Leavensden hospital leading to the closure of the site.
