TQ3759 : Grade segregation on footpath 93

taken 13 years ago, near to Farleigh, Surrey, England

Grade segregation on footpath 93
Grade segregation on footpath 93
A curious overbridge on the footpath, and not because of the lie of the land. It carries one of the former drives to the old Croydon Mental Hospital, now an exclusive housing estate. This drive is no longer used, and looks as if it was a sort of tradesman's entrance. The main hospital was to the right and its much smaller isolation hospital was to the left. This segregation of routes is reminiscent of the sort of thing that was engineered in South Africa in the apartheid days.
