Asylum For Idiots, Earlswood, Redhill, Surrey. The Illustrated London News. 1854.

Hi there, please could you let me know the original source of the above still and where I may be able to find a larger collection of Earlswood Asylum stills (exterior & interior) circa 1880 to 1997. With thanks and best

Hi Ginita. All I know about the above is that the picture appeared in the Illustrated London News in 1854. There are some displays from Earlswood Asylum in the Belfry Shopping Centre in Redhill. You might be able to find out more from the person who maintains them, but I'm afraid I wouldn't know who to contact. There has been a book published I believe on the history of the Asylum too. I think I've got a copy, but don't know if I can easily put my hands on it.

Foot-races at the Annual Festival of The Asylum for Idiots, Earlswood.
The Illustrated London News. June 25th 1864.

"The annual festival provided by a kind and judicious management for the inmates of the Earlswood Asylum, near Redhill, took place on Thursday week. A numerous company of the friends and patrons of that institution, with other visitors, had come to witness the enjoyment of these poor young folks in the sports and pastimes of the day. There were games of cricket, football and croquet, Aunt Sally, Punch and Judy, races, and jumping-matches for prizes. Ther patients appeared to enter into these games with considerable pleasure, and with an unexpected display of skill and intelligence. We have engraved a sketch, by our own artist, representing the foot-race. At half-past five o'clock, at a given signal, the whole of them sat down in a ring on the greass and had tea, which was partaken of in a most orderly manner, and at half-past six a fire-balloon was sent up, much to their delight. The proceedings were brought to a conclusion by several songs and glees being performed by the Earlswood singing class and negro toupe, the singers keeping excellent time and tune - being a proof of how much care must be bestowed upon their mental cultivation. The band of the Coldstream Guards performed during the day, and the lawn in front of the building was gaily dressed up with flags and tents. The Earlswood Asylum now holds 377 inmates, who are divided into classes, and accomodated according to their rates of payment - those paying the lowest being placed on the same footing as the non-paying inmates. The vistors, who went over the whole house, were fully satisfied with the arrangements for the different classes - private bed-rooms and sitting-rooms for those who can afford them, large airy dormitories comfortably furnished for the second-class, and for the third-class and elected patients apartments quite as comfortable, but not quite so elegant. The srupulous cleanliness and neatness of every part of the building, furniture, and appointments was especially admired. On the farm there is a stock of very fine milch cattle and some thriving pigs; but new farm buildings are much needed, a fact well known to the board, who are determined to pay off debts before incurring the expense. Such an institution, however, ought not be left in the want of funds."

Fall of cottages into a sand cave at Reigate. May 19 1860. The Illustrated London News. "On the morning of Wednesday week the inhabitants of Reigate were alarmed by a loud report, which at first was believed to be the shock of an earthquake, but it was soon ascertained that it arose from a large sand cave belonging to the premises of the Red Cross Inn having fallen in. Over this cave there were erected several cottages, and five of these, or at least portions of them, fell in with the cave, and ten others appeared to be hanging as it were by a mere thread. The escape of persons (twenty-three in number) who resided in the cottages was marvellous. The bedsteads in four of the cottages were partly hanging over the chasm, and in one of them a poor woman was lying very ill, her medical attendment having just left her. She was taken out of the front window. The inhabitants of Reigate have kindly got up a subscription in aid of the poor people who have had their furniture destroyed by this singular accident."

I remember hearing that back in Victorian times you could get bed and board in the Red Cross in return for working in the sand mines.

When I was growing up in the 1980's it was a right of passage to go down the caves illicitly. The entrance was behind the advertising hoardings next to Reigate Exhausts, it was sealed up not long after.

I am looking for information about my Great grandfather Adam Badger. Canadian record indicate he came to Canada in May of 1874 from the Red Hill Reformatory. Are there any records on file for him.

Home for fifty boys recently built on the Philantropic Society's farm, Redhill,
at the expense of Mr. Samuel Gurney, MP.

This institution is quietly and successfully carrying on its operations at Redhill, Surrey. The Philanthropic Society was established so far back as the year 1788. In 1849, under the guidance of the Rev. Sydney Turner (the present Inspector of Reformatories), the committee founded the farm schools, consisting of a very complete establishment. Year by year its influence has been extended and its usefulness acknowledged, no efforts being spared by the committee to promote its efficiency and good working. Since the year 1849, 1484 boys have been received, of whom more than 600 have emigrated. A large majority of those who have left its walls are now filling situations with credit to themselves and the good report of their employers. There are now 260 inmates, who are lodged in six separate houses, or "homes," the last erected being names Gurney's, after its generous founder, Mr. Samual Gurney, M.P. The building was erected from the designs of Mr. Richard Bell, and the whole cost amounted to ?1400. On Wednesday, the 11th ult.. the harvest home was celebrated with the usual sports and festivities, in the presence of a large gathering of the neighbouring clergy and gentry. To those who would know more of the society's work we would recommend a visit to the farm and a persual of the last report of the excellent chaplain, the Rev. Charles Walters, M.A. The Illustrated London News, October 5th, 1861.
