The Fourth County Lunatic Asylum at Whittingham was built in 1869 and opened on April 1st, 1893 in response to needs of an additional psychiatric hospital in Lancashire. The facility was able to house just over 2,000 patients, but grew with three major additions to the original hospital complex (known as the St Luke’s Division); St John’s (the Annex – 1880), Cameron House, and St Margaret’s (the New or West Annex – 1912). Also included on campus was an infectious diseases sanatorium (Fryar’s Villa), train station, theater with hospital brass band and orchestra, church, and post office. In the early 1920’s, the facility was renamed “Whittingham Mental Hospital”, and after the outbreak of World War II in 1939, the military used the St Margaret’s Division as an emergency hospital to treat both military and civilian casualties until 1946. Shortly thereafter, the staff at Whittingham produced the first EEG machine from war surplus material. The patient population rose to over 3,500, making Whittingham Mental Hospital the largest in the country.
