    After booking a long weekend away, this was the first point of call while heading into Wales.

    The Hospital originally built as a workhouse in the late 1830s,it has not been used since the new Holywell Community Hospital opened in 2008 about a mile down the road .

    Auctioneers say there was intense interest in the site, selling well in excess of its £150,000 guide price at £275,000.

    The original workhouse complex and adjoining chapel were Grade II listed 20 years ago.

    The early Victorian building was designed by St Asaph architect John Welch and used as a workhouse for the poor of 14 parishes. It was built by Thomas Hughes of Liverpool and the contractor was Samuel Parry. There may have been alterations in 1869 and it was enlarged to the right in 1902. There were also some modern extensions during it's conversion to hospital use. It has the standard workhouse grid plan with separate courtyards for men and women and transverse and spinal ranges with a linking central octagon
    The buildings are set in grounds of around 7.4 acres which have been allocated for housing development. It is thought up to 70 houses could be built on the site.

    In 2006, television personality Cilla Black visited Llutsey as part of a BBC Wales programme called Coming Home with Cilla Black.
