My 4th trip to the abandoned St Johns Asylum in Lincoln. Full history and photos from the first 3 visits can be found in the report from September 2012 & report from May 2013. Briefly the Asylum was built in 1852 and enlarged on several subsequent occasions in 1859, 1866, 1881 and 1902. The asylum finally closed in 1989/1990 and was bought by a property developer a few years later who has converted half of the site into houses but the main asylum buildings are Grade II listed buildings and cant be demolished.
Visited with Donna, Sickbag and Starlight. I was glad to get to see this one again, works are now moving forward at a much quicker pace in respect of the renovations. There is now scaffolding around the old main admin building, various parts are partitioned off with new boarding making navigation more difficult and I believe since this visit only last month a new fence has been erected and internal contractors lighting fitted inside the main buildings.
