Wow what a month March has turned out to be who would have thought the Police saying they would not be charging anyone for the abuse in the 1970's would cause so many news articles, check out the 'News articles page' for the latest articles. Paul Zentveld who was in LA in the adolescent unit has been doing a few interviews, I heard him on Radio Live earlier. TV One were interested.
So the Water Tower has been sold and is to be turned into a family home. Go grand designs! Will be interesting yet intriguing too see. Word is the Admin block has sold it will become a backpackers (although that is what it was marketed as) not much of a scary place to stay unlike the old Napier prison which was a backpackers now that's a thrill. Rest of the hospital still stands but I guess that will be coming dooooooown unless they can develop that into something soon!
Pictures below, 2 images of which were the old Nurses quarters which are now at Nga Tawa School in Marton. I will have to dig through to try and find pictures of the nurses quarters to see what they used to look like because it was a pretty big building & it appears only a small part has been moved to the school.
Thanks for reading,
