Broadmoor Hospital, Crowthorne - Bracknell Forest (UA)

A mid-C19 asylum, built for the criminally insane to designs by Joshua Jebb. The site is undergoing major redevelopment with construction of a new modern secure hospital underway and due for completion this year. Future plans have been to convert the original building into an hotel, with the extensive walled garden to be developed for housing. The ornamented farmland has survived but needs managing to sustain significance. Faced with more major change close liaison with the owner and Local Authority is necessary to ensure what remains in terms of historic significance can be salvaged.
