Hampshire County Mental Hospital, compact arrow design by G.T. Hine, 1910-1917. Requisitioned as the No. 4 Canadian General Hospital in 1917 and finally opened to psychiatric patients in 1921. Closed in 1997 with some buildings retained as apartments. Further reading: http://thetimechamber.co.uk/beta/sites/asylums/park-prewett-county-asylum-basingstoke

This area is now one of the new Rooksdown Housing estate in Basingstoke. Most of the main buildings in this shot have been demolished but the tower has been retained.
