Visited this rather sorry looking hospital with @woopashoopaa @Telf @Vulex was the second place of the day. Not a lot so see pretty much stripped out but was in the area so popped in for a nosey. So on with a few pictures and history...

Under an Amendment Act set in 1834 all parishes in Wales and England were grouped together into Poor Law Unions. Each Poor Law Union had to provide a place where people who were unable to support themselves could live and work, known as the workhouse. Because of this Lluesty Hospital was erected during 1839 by the Holywell Poor Law Union.


In 1965 the north side became the Hollywell community hospital which operated for 43 years before being closed in 2008. The site has its own on-site parish designed by a proclaimed local architect in 1883-4 and was a feature of the site for many years (though now much of the flourish is covered by boards!).

Upon its closure the site was owned by NHS Wales and was sold at auction in 2011 with full planning for 69 dwellings for the seemingly low figure of £275,000. The buyers are said to have sold the North half of the site within a few months of ownership for an “undisclosed amount” presumably making a quick profit!

@Lavino, you've made this place look better than it was. Nice pics!

My camera is working again, I had flicked a dial that I didn't know existed and it made it all out of focus, as if my camera needed glasses.
