Cheshire County Asylum. Macclesfield. Derelict Places.

The Church. Canon 600D. 
Mental Stairs. Canon 600D.
A spure of them moment trip. Unfortunately this location has been dramatically transformed in an estate. All that remains are the church and these stairs from the original asylum built in 1871.  Later known as Park Side Asylum, being in this place made imagine before of its being because a small essence remains. The Church of St Luke still stands, although boarded up, its magnificent structure appears strong due to being grade 2 listed in 1989. The Asylum was home for many patients, including epileptic, handicap and the mentally ill.  Not an amazing explore. But is certainly interesting to see what was left.
