If you can find it, (if it is still there) one of those urban explorer groups had entered the closed-down site and posted video of it on You tube. It might have been 48 Days, but I am not sure, as there are a number of such groups'

There is a lot of stuff online about the place, have a Google.

Quite a lot of patient records are available at Preston Records Office . I did an online search on archives for an ancestor who also died there , then went to records office and got copies from the actual records.
