    Did anyone go to the cold unit for a ‘holiday’ in the early 1970s? We went twice and it was a great experience. I would love to hear from anyone who may have been there.

    My parents attended the Salisbury centre in 1969, the year before I was born. They have great photos and stories of walking in the countryside wearing masks, and having books and magazines disinfected before reading. I checked the dates carefully and am sad to report I was NOT conceived there!

    I’m reminded of The Coffin Cure by Alan Nourse.
