    Well this was an interesting day, we set off to Talgarth in hope of exploring the asylum but after a while of looking around the outside of the site and not finding a way in and being yelled at by the welsh local yocal's driving through we decided to leave it, i know its not a proper explore but i thought I'd show you guys the photos of how its looking at the moment, which i have to say isn't its best

    The building, designed by Messrs Giles, Gough and Trollope of London followed the compact arrow plan and was built at a cost of £126,000. It was opened amid public ceremony on March 18, 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." During the Second World War the hospital took in 67 male and 48 female patients from Cardiff City Mental Hospital. Its last wards closed in 1999. Following closure, the buildings and surrounding estate were sold to the former Chief Medical Officer for just £227,000. However, due to the site's isolated location and the global recession, the venture failed and only one or two businesses remained on the site by early 2009. 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.
