Monyhull Colony was established in 1908 for
the care of "sane epileptics and feebleminded persons". It was
considered at the time to be a "bold venture" and was to act as a
pioneer for the care and treatment of people with learning disabilities across
the country. In the ninety years that followed, Monyhull was to become home to
hundreds of people.
This book traces the development of services to people with learning disabilities at Monyhull in the face of changing attitudes and legislation.
