St. John’s Hospital/Lincolnshire County Pauper Lunatic Asylum. Penniless “lunatics” were also the main residents of St. John’s Hospital in Lincolnshire, England. Opened in 1852, the asylum was enlarged and expanded many times until its final closure in 1989. It was later converted to apartments, but not before urban explorers were able to get in and have a look around at what is left over after pauper lunatics occupy a building for more than 140 years.
