Visited New Norfolk for the first time and didn't know anything about the old Asylum - so I found I couldn't find out enough about this intriguing place. Visited the large Antiques Shop there [however don't know what it was, and would like to know]. A great antiques shop - such good quality items.
Also visited the Nurses' Quarters, still being restored - and the young Scottish lad from the Brick-a-brack shop was enthusiastic about what they were trying to do in restoring his section. I hope the restoration continues.
I also had coffee in the old Nurses' Chapel - what a delightful little place [however I had to ask what it was, as there's no signage] - beautifully restored.
There was work being done to demolish a large building, I believe to be the old childrens' quarters, plus many other buildings that look ominous...
From an outsider, I think it would be so interesting to have some sort of map, or info sheet of the whole site, advising what the buildings were.
