    right so this is my second report, as you can see from the date i went here over a year ago now.

    mid wales hospital is in a pretty bad state in places, collapsed floors, gaping holes etc. we only saw around a 3rd of the whole site so at some point id like to do a return visit.

    The Mid Wales Hospital, originally the Brecon and Radnor Joint Counties Lunatic Asylum was a psychiatric hospital in Talgarth, Wales. Initially dedicated to treating patients from the counties of Brecknockshire and Radnorshire, after the First World War, patients from Montgomeryshire were also admitted, and the 'asylum' was extended and renamed the "Mid-Wales Counties Mental Hospital". In 2009 the site was offered for sale. By this time, several properties that once belonged to the hospital, such as the gatehouse, had been sold off and the buildings were becoming derelict. There are signs of demolition throughout the site and many of the original slates (believed to be worth in excess of £1 million) were stripped from the roofs.

    enjoy the pics,

    No demolition, the ward at the top by wards 7/8 collapsed the winter before last because there was a sodding great water tank in the loft (hence why you see metal support posts in the floor below) and the slate has been gone since August 2008 when the then current owners flogged it off for about £40k!

    Dread to think the state of the place after the rain we've had recently. Wouldn't be surprised if the main hall roof has caved in on one side.

    Nice pics thou :)
