The Norfolk Lunatic Asylum (St Andrew's Hospital)
With its chapel by the southern perimeter wall. The converted chapel is situated to the south of the main building, right beside the perimeter road, now Francis Stone Court. The grade II listed building once formed part of the Norfolk Lunatic Asylum. Built in Classical Revival style in 1856-59 by John Brown, county surveyor of yellow brick with ashlar and brick dressings and a hipped slate roof with hipped octagonal ventilator. The building has an octagonal body with porch and vestry on its east side and an organ chamber and tower to the north. The rectangular nave with western vestry was built in 1877, probably by THB Heslop (county surveyor). In the basement are the former mortuary rooms and a half-tiled post-mortem room with a glazed ceramic dissection table on pedestals.
