Insane Asylums of England 2012 Calendar

Insane Asylums of England 2012 is a calendar which celebrates the dubious legacy of the country’s most notorious institutions for the psychically unwell and ostracised.

From the Bethlem Royal Hospital of London to Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum, England’s finest insane asylums are given the calendar treatment, a month dedicated to each one. Photographs of the majestic buildings are accompanied by killer facts and anecdotes. Did you know, for instance, that Horton Mental Hospital used to be the UK’s leading mosquito breeding centre? The deliberate infection of malaria was used to treat some nervous disorders.
