Langdon Hospital in Dawlish, Devon was a residential institution built in 1934 to intern individuals ‘suffering from a mental deficiency’. It was owned and managed by Exeter Health Authority. Patients at Langdon were expected to rise early every morning and help with daily tasks. These tasks consisted of cleaning duties, kitchen duties, upholstery skills, laundry duties or gardening duties in the 70 acres of gardens and grounds around the hospital.
