    Llwynypia Hospital, South Wales

    Llwynypia Hospital is/was in the Rhondda Valleys in South Wales. The site closed a couple of years ago after a replacement hospital opened directly across the road. The Hospital used to comprise of three main buildings and several smaller buildings, with a casualty ward, an outpatients department and several long stay wards.

    Two of the main buildings were demolished fairly soon after closure, and hit the headlines in the area as people were outraged by the amount being spent by the NHS on protecting the site from vandals and thieves (The Health Trust were rumoured to be paying £230,000 p.a to a security firm to monitor the site). However one building still remains, which housed several wards, treatment rooms and drugs stores.

    The remaining building is beginning to show heavy signs of dereliction, the metal thieves have attacked and although the roof remains in good condition, pretty much everything that can be stripped has been stripped. Aside from one or two rooms, there are very few signs of graffiti or kids messing around.

    Word of warning to anyone considering paying a visit. The site had obviously been lived in although there was no-one there at the time, at the furthest end of the corridor upstairs lie two makeshift beds and evidence of intravenous drug use as well as newspapers from last month.

    I thought they had completely demolished this site. Great pics! I have a lot of interest in this hospital. I was born there, treated loads there as a child and had two family members pass away in the very buiding you photographed, a few years ago ( I say a few its probably 10/15 years now).

    Wish Id visited this after they closed it and before they demolished it....

    I was born here as well, likewise my mother and a fair portion of my family.

    The hospital was predominantly made up of three main buildings, and a few smaller outbuildings. Two of these were demolished fairly quickly. For some reason unknown to me, this remaining building was not demolished. I can only assume this is because it was a more modern building than the others, and it's build/shape/size I imagine could easily be converted into offices/flats for an easy quick sell?

    Like I said, as long as it doesn't get demolished in the mean time, the building is in OK condition - get yourself down there!
