Where I am being cured...

  1. Does anyone know what this place is? Im intrested in old hospitals, asylums, etc. but I have never seen this one before.

    Any info appreciated.

    (I also shudder to think of the ways they attempted to cure him of his stammering. The methods used back then were less than humane.)

    Thanks.

  2. Hello

    I know what you mean. I can't imagine Edwardian treatments for stammering were much fun.

    Have a look at the following link to the history of Brampton Park. Children with speech difficulties were treated there from 1889 to 1907. Apparently it's now part of the RAF estate.

    If you find out any more, it would be great to hear from you again!

    Best,
