Bramley haunting on town street

Meanwood Mental Hospital

Now it only shut down a few years back, i think the government closed it, but some of the people who came out of there were wrongfully in there to begin with.

One story that comes to mind is that of some women who were in there and the reason, the mental disability they had was to have an illegitimate child! now this was almost 60 years ago since they were admitted and now they were so institutionalised, they found it near most impossible to re-integrate back into society.
