Visited with Pob and Dreamworx, sorry for destroying so many of your photos.

Really nice and easy explore, and certainly no worries about access. Having said that, there are workers in there painting, and whilst near the theatre and stage, i went into the same corridor and saw one person running off at the far end :confused: Either a painter or explorer!!!

HISTORY
Opened 1903, in 1921 the name was changed from Breacon and Radnor Joint Asylum to Mid Wales Hospital in 1921. Built to cater for 352 patients, by the end of 1925 455 were present. By 1994 the number averaged 140. - This is relevant as you walk around, as some parts of the hospital near the theatre are certainly in worse condition than than other parts, and appear to be have left to nature for quite a while. The hospital was closed in 2000 with some facilities being combined with nearby Bronllys.

Sadly, I found this quite a boring explore - No history left, just a lot of really nice solid wooden doors!!!
