Former Brookwood Hospital
Former Brookwood Hospital
The clock tower of this imposing Victorian mental hospital that existed on this site between 1867 and 1994. The site formerly covered 150 acres and was a self contained community with a 12 acre farm, shops and even its own fire brigade. There were 650 patients when first opened with a peak number of 1900 by 1947. Closed in 1994 the original buildings, now listed, have been converted to flats. Many of the old ward blocks have been demolished to make way for housing and a Sainsbury's supermarket.
