Welcome to the Out of Sight, Out of Mind? project in St Albans.  This is a record of the former mental hospitals in the area including Hill End, Napsbury, Cell Barnes, Harperbury, Leavesden and Shenley.  We are looking for contributions from anyone who has recollections of any of these hospitals. 

This website has been developed by people like you. You only need to register to contribute, so have a go - it's easy! Perhaps you would like to volunteer - we are always happy to welcome new editors. You can help whatever your level of computer skills;  just visit the Would you like to join us page.
