Originally Coney Hill Mental Hospital (aka Lunatic Asylum - why don't we still have these, there are plenty of lunatics to fill them!). Opened 1883; closed 1994. Clock Tower building (trig) was gutted by fire 1999. Site since redeveloped for residential housing with clock tower containing 25 apartments. The developers have replaced the spire but with a shortened version. The trig can only be classified as 'Destroyed'.

Viewed from new housing estate. Listed as destroyed in the OS database but is extant. Spire roof appears old but has it been re-reoofed to have been classed as destroyed?

the main hospital building (complete with spire on central tower) is now a good-looking conversion to posh apartments ("flats" to the non-posh !)
