Administrative history:
Brief General History of Public Lunatic Asylums:
By an Act of 14 Geo. III, c. 49 (1774) private lunatic asylums had to be licensed by Quarter Sessions, and two justices and a physician appointed to inspect them. In 1808 (48 Geo. III, c.96) the justices themselves were empowered to set asylums. In 1828 an Act was passed for the erection of County Lunatic Asylums at the expence of the rates and for enabling two or more authorities to combine for the purpose. Two more Acts were then passed, in 1845 and 1853; and public asylums were generally established in consequence by the various local authorities throughout England
Bicton and Montgomeryshire Counties and Wenlock Borough Lunatic Asylum / Shelton Hospital:
The Origins:
Sir Baldwin Leighton was extremely influential in the conception and provision of care for the mentally ill people of Shropshire. He was a magistrate for the counties of Shropshire and Montgomery and was also a humanitarian who regularly pursued the improvement of provision for pauper lunatics. In January 1841 a quarter-session committee was formed to which Leighton was assigned; its aim was the provision of a pauper lunatic asylum. One of the key objectives of the Committee was to select a site for such a county institution and Leighton was very influential in selecting the site at Bicton Heath. During August and September Leighton devoted himself to travelling the country visiting various lunatic asylums inspecting their location and the conditions of care of the pauper patients. In July 1842 he proposed to the Shrewsbury Quarter Sessions the benefits of Shropshire and Montgomeryshire sharing the costs of the New Asylum. Initially the motion failed because of language difficulties between English speaking and Welsh speaking patients. Another influential character was local physician Henry Johnson. Also a humanitarian. He was appointed general physician to the Royal Salop Infirmary (St. Mary's Place, Shrewsbury) in 1835 and accompanied the county magistrates as medical visitor on their inspection of the House if Industry at Kingsland, to which in 1833 had been added a provincial licensed house recieving private patients and paupers. Johnson became medical visitor to the New Shropshire Lunatic Asylum, and was also physician to the County gaol.
The New Shropshire Lunatic Asylum was built between 1843-1845 on 15 acres of land belonging to the Parish of St. Julian.
Development of the Asylum:
The Asylum at Bicton Heath established in 1843 was originally for Shropshire alone.
In 1844 the Borough of Wenlock was united by agreement (See Related Material Field).
It was officially opened on 28th March 1945.
In January 1846 overtures were made by Montgomeryshire proposing to join forces for asylum purposes, and in April of that year an agreement was entered into with that County. Henceforth the asylum was known as the Lunatic Asylum for the Counties of Salop and Montgomery, and for the Borough of Wenlock.
From 1851-1863 the addition of Shrewsbury and Oswestry was made to the asylums title. In Shropshire, the county asylum, was a joint institution of which the Counties of Shropshire and Montgomeryshire and the Borough of Wenlock were owners and formed the management committee, while Shrewsbury and Oswestry had the use of it on payment of a capitation rent.
In 1864 the asylums title reverts back to the Lunatic Asylum, for the Counties of Salop and Montgomery, and for the Borough of Much Wenlock.
In 1888 the duty of providing an Asylum was transferred to the County Council.
In 1911 the agreement with Montgomery was dissolved (Montgomeryshires interest in the institution was bought out) and the asylum returned to being the Asylum for Shropshire and the Borough of Wenlock alone.
In 1921 the asylum changed its title yet again to Salop Mental Hospital.
In 1940 a tempory title for the emergency part of Salop Mental Hospital from 1940-1941 was the 'The Copthorne and Shelton Emergency Hospital' (Huts were built to care for up to 400 war casulaties).
In 1948 the duty of providing an Asylum was transferred to the Regional Hospital Board.
Around the summer of 1948 the title of Salop Mental Hospital changes to Shelton Hospital.
Chapel:
The provision of a Chapel was seen as essential as a means of recreation as well as a place of worship. Built in 1854-6
Farm and Gardens:
In 1856 14 acres of land were bought, and the Asylum Farm began. In 1883 piggeries were built at a cost of £1,600. The following year 300 pigs were purchased. On Friday 15th October 1971 the Farm was sold after 125 years on the instructions of the Hospital Management Committee. This was a direct result of the Government intervention due to the national 'Foot and Mouth' epidemic of 1967.
Library:
Introduced in 1878 and placed under the charge of the Chaplain (for the use of attendants and more intelligent patients).
Cricket Ground:
In 1884 a large piece of ground was purchased (from Mr. Sproston) and levelled, several hedges removed

Administrative history:
The hierarchy of the Asylum system set up by the Act for the Regulation of the Care and Treatment of Lunatics 1845, which made it a statutory obligation to care for the mentally ill, includes:
1). The Board of Commissioners in Lunacy or Commissioners of the Board of Control (Central Government: a Board set up to regulate the running of Asylums)
2). The Committee of Visitors, otherwise Visiting Committee or Visitors: Independent overseers of standards and practices (an official monitoring body for the Asylum, who monitored care and conditions, even when patients were boarded out (when patients were sent to other Asylums because of lack of accommodation). They were usually Justices of the Peace, who were not paid so as to keep them completely independent).
3). The Medical Superintendant (Doctor in charge and the Manager of the Asylum)
From 1851 to 1863 the Boroughs of Shrewsbury and Oswestry were added to the Asylum's title. The county asylum, was a joint institution of which the Counties of Shropshire and Montgomeryshire and the Borough of Wenlock were owners and formed the management committee, while Shrewsbury and Oswestry had the use of it on payment of a capitation rent.
In 1864 the Asylum's title reverted back to the 'Lunatic Asylum for the Counties of Salop and Montgomery, and for the Borough of Much Wenlock'

5th Annual Report of the Medical Superintendent of the Lunatic Asylum, for the Counties of Salop and Montgomery, and for the Borough of Much Wenlock. 1849.
