Our picture gallery takes you on a tour inside the Tindal Centre after it closed in 2014 and before it was turned into housing.

Pictures show inside derelict Aylesbury mental institution the Tindal Centre before it was turned into housing

Anyone growing up in Aylesbury would be aware of the Tindal Centre mental institution which closed back in 2014 before being turned into housing.

The psychiatric unit was the subject of all manner of urban myths and old wives' tales over the years having been founded in the late 19th century. Now thanks to these amazing never-seen-before pictures we can take you on a fascinating tour of the building as it sat derelict before being turned into housing near the Aylesbury Young Offenders Institute.

The Tindal Centre, formerly known as Tindal Hospital and referred to locally as 'Tindal' was a centre for the treatment of mental disorders in Aylesbury
