Swans at Fairmile


Fairmile Hospital in Cholsey. The place used to be a psychiatric hospital but originally was called Berkshire Lunatic asylum. The crests over the entrance show Reading and Newbury's coat of alms indicating the area it took in. The place closed in 2003 and in 2010work started on converting the place into residential use. Last week the hording which stopped you from seeing what was going on was removed and the sculpture of the swans erected. The place still has a few weeks work before it is finished.

  1. Think I've seen a similar sculpture somewhere else.
