Hi Mr. Motts! The Main Hall has indeed been demolished to make the area safe, as correctly assumed by AUTUMNTWIN. Since 'SAVE' & local opposition over re-development of most of the buildings in 2003, the entire site affords Listed / Historic Protection. Basically, most of the buildings are going to be re-used, and the mature grounds re-juvinated as part of the proposed landscaping. Looks like the Developers won't be allowed to ruin this site (so long as the Planning Dept. keep a very close eye on what actually happens!!! Great site Motts -keep safe & keep up the good work!
Excellent pictures of Severalls!!!
I live in Colchester, and have done many "Recces" around this abandoned Asylum. For more info & pics, feel free to look at them on me U.E. site---
