Welcome to the Three Counties Asylum website


The asylum dealt with psychiatric patients from 1860 until it closed the doors in 1999.

After a full restoration and conversion into apartments, gymnasium and brasserie it still stands proud on the Arlesey /Stotfold border and is one of very few complete Victorian asylums in Britain.
