    Going back last year myself and a friend and done a bit of research on a recently closed hospital, so we organised a day out to go and explore the place, so we drove for about a hour to reach our location, and to our disappointment the place had been totally demolished two days before we got there. We were gutted!

    The resin why they demolished it so quick was because more and more people where using it to go and take heavy drugs and someone had been killed in there.

    So we get on to our friend Google so see what else is about in the area and as they as if all else fails you can always rely on another empty hospital in Wales and lucky enough there was another, less then half a mile down the road.

    We arive at our destination and the place looks pretty locked up and secure, we looked around the back and there were two doors wide open, on closer inspection we could see heavy use of drugs being used, needles etc.

    We go in through the back door and the ground floor is pretty much in complete darkness, not knowing whether there was anyone else in there smacked out of there heard or not was quite daunting, walking around each corner and though each door way in complete darkness was quite scary, as we walked around the place we could here activity but it was as if they were trying to avoid us, so walking around the place knowing there was someone in there just added to the thrill and my heart was 100mph, anyway we made our way through the whole building, we didn't see any one but there was plenty of tell tale sighs that we wasn't alone in there!

    History
    The Old General Hospital was built in 1888, mainly by the efforts of Sir W.T.Lewis (Lord Merthyr), who obtained financial support from the Marquess of Bute, and by public subscription.
    His statue was erected in front of the hospital.
    The workmen of the local Ironworks, Coalmines, Railways, and Local Government paid a weekly suscription to the funds of the Hospital.
    From 1927 to 1947 the annual Whitsun Fete and Gala at Cyfarthfa Park was held to raise funds.

    Heres the pics hope you enjoy our explore

    Most of the photos are pretty good, but you would be best to remove the out of focus ones as they don't really add anything to your report.

    Also, there are a few issues with the format of the report:-

    1.) The title needs to be correctly formatted with the FULL site name and month/year you visited, as we don't do 'code names' on 28dl.

    2.) You need to add some history about the place you visited as well. I don't recognize this place initially and some history would help me (and others) out.
