Artist's Description

In one of the wards a table stands at the end, set up almost as if someone was about to sit down to a meal before they left. This asylum was open from 1882 and closed finally in 1991, after a slow and gradual wind down. It was the third of three asylums in the area and was only ever built to be overflow for the other two, so its gradual close just meant the patients from here could be transferred back to the other two now that there were fewer numbers due to care in the community etc.
