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 is created by a group of volunteers. We’re always interested in new recruits, so if you’re interested please contact us.
