Ken Crump, one of our members, trained and worked there as a Registered PsychiatricNurse from1963 until 1989. He has a wealth of knowledge about the extensive buildings and many people who were treated there. The young Edward Elgar held one of his first musical appointments here as master of the Asylum Band.
