We reported some time ago that the historic artefacts collected by Richard Knight and passed on to Fairfield Parish Council (FPC) in 2017 were to go on permanent display in Fairfield Community Hall. The display is now in place and will be opened up to visitors several times a year, on occasions like the recent Annual Parish Meeting. The website set up by Richard to house everything from newspaper stories and old photos to letters from former staff members, and even a few ghost stories, has now also been acquired by FPC.

There had been some concern earlier in the year that the website might disappear because its former owner no longer had the time or the funds to maintain it. Now in FPC’s safe hands, it will stay online and gradually be updated. You can visit the website at http://www.threecountiesasylum.co.uk.
