Moira Gavin has produced a video (click on link above to see) as part of our exhibition currently on show at the Museum ‘In Search of Self’.Moria has been cataloging our books and drew her inspiration from one of the many lovely old books we have in our collection. Henry Burdett’s book is A fascinating read. Moria has taken some extracts and our Chairman Brian Kington kindly put on period costume to read them from the Asylum’s Board room. (7mins)
