Moulsford Asylum, which later became Fair Mile Hospital, was designed by Howell and opened in 1870. It was designed to accommodate 285 patients and was almost full to capacity within the first year. It was extended by Howell in 1880 to 609 beds, and again by Hine in 1901 to 800 beds. The hospital admitted pauper patients and also private patients if there was spare capacity.
1995 there were 212 patients still resident at the hospital, and Large parts of the building were closed off. The hospotal finally closed in 2003. It is now being redevolped into housing with a lot of the original buildings being retained.
