You would think that a place for the criminally insane in the 19th century would be a dark place. It is surprising to see the huge windows that let in light and let you see the the world outside. The broken windows are the result of 21st vandalism as most of the windows have no protection from this type of attack. If you get the chance, visit the ward on one of their tour days – you are free to wander on your own around the building and grounds,  or listen to one of the guides who have extensive knowledge of this historic place.
