Notes NOTES: This Franco-Gothic style institution for the treatment of the insane was built between 1873 and 1885 thanks to the philanthropy of Thomas Holloway. It passed to the National Health Service in 1948. After a long period of neglect, it was redeveloped in 2000 to provide gated housing known as Virginia Park.
