Summary
'The Last Asylum' begins with Barbara Taylor's visit to the innocuously named Princess Park Manor in Friern Barnet, North London - a picture of luxury and repose. But this is the former site of one of England's most infamous lunatic asylums, the Middlesex County Pauper Lunatic Aslyum at Colney Hatch. At its peak this asylum housed nearly 3,000 patients - among them, in the 1980s, Barbara Taylor herself. This is her powerful account of her battle with mental illness, set inside the wider story of the end of the UK asylum system
