I was taken here as a child on a visit with a young lady who had thoughts of becoming a Nun. One of the most frightening experiences of my life. We were taken on a ward which i can only describe as Victorian Assylum. There were people moaning tied to cribs and rocking in chairs, I guess that was how they dealt with things way back in the 60's. I suppose the Nuns were the only people were able to care for them.
