  • Andrew Sims (a1)
Extract

“There they stand, isolated, majestic, imperious, brooded over by the gigantic water tower … the asylums which our forefathers built with such immense solidity to express the notions of their day. Do not for a moment underestimate their powers of resistance to our assault” (Enoch Powell, 1961).
