Epsom had similar. I believe that one in ten of the population was officially insane. Those institutions too are now all long gone.

Given how many hospitals there were on the Horton Estate on the north-west of Epsom, that wouldn't surprise me.  ;D

ISTR most of the east side of Horton Lane had already been redeveloped by the time I'd moved away 20 years ago.

Can't say I remember that guy - strictly speaking, while my postal address had Epsom in it, I was up by the race course and usually only came into town on a Saturday...

  • Drilling holes into brick is a lot easier if your 8mm masonry bit is not as blunt as your criticism of Julia Tory-Sewer, and
  • There are nowadays two sorts of drill bit, and those with the oversize shaft will not fit your elderly Bosch
