     History
    The only derelict yet still standing part of the epsom cluster,closed in the 90's and derelict ever since, although a small part of the site remains in use for research purposes.

    During construction and planning phases it was known as Eleventh London County Asylum, but by the time of it's opening reforms had lead to the discontinuation of the use of the title 'Asylum' and it was opened under the name of 'West Park Mental Hospital'.
