    Don't really know what I was expecting from this place. I had an idea it was in a bad shape from previous reports but I was not prepared for how bad this spot actually is. Falling to bits this one with loads of collapsed rooms and corridors, ceilings falling down and bare walls. The main hall was cool as half of the ceiling had collapsed and half had not, creating a nice effect. There was very few tiles left on the buildings and this has obviously contributed to the hospitals demise and ruin. All that said I was still glad to see the place and we had a relaxed few hours wandering around here. Visited with non member Paul.
    HISTORY
    Also know as The Brecon and Radnor Counties Joint Lunatic Asylum. It was opened on 18th March, 1903, by the Rt Hon. Lord Glanusk who said of it "everything has been done that human ingenuity could devise for the happiness and safety of the inmates, and under the blessing of God, for their speedy restoration to health."
    Although the population of the two Welsh counties remained small, by the end of 1925, 455 patients were resident. The asylum was designed to be self-sufficient, and had its own private water, electricity, heating and sewerage systems as well as a considerable agricultural estate. As well as wards, the hospital had a large hall, kitchens, workshops, a tailor, bakery, shoe-maker and printing shops as well as 8 acres of market gardens.
    Apart from a short spell as a POW camp, the hospital remained as a 'rehabilitation centre' until its closure. During the 1970's & 80's it began downsizing as more effective treatments and better community care became available. In 1994 the number averaged around 140 and wards began closing gradually. In 1999, the last wards closed. Some of the remaining facilities were then moved to the nearby Bronllys Hospital (formerly the South Wales Sanatorium).

    The main hall ceiling looks great! Really like how that looks. The corridor with the doors hanging over makes for a nice photo too
