When the new London County Council was established in 1889 it took over several asylums for its own pauper lunatics and the Home Counties were left with fewer places for their patients. As the Middlesex County Council was no longer able to send its patients to the Hanwell or Colney Hatch institutions, it decided to build its own asylum and, in 1898, purchased the freehold of Napsbury Manor Farm, consisting of 412 acres, for the erection of a county mental asylum.
