Visited with Tumbles and Seffy.

I've been wanting to revisit Talgarth for quite a while. We all had a free afternoon so crossed the bridge, stopped for McDonald's, then headed to good old Talgarth. I managed to see some parts I missed last time I went, which was great.

Brief history:
he Mid Wales Hospital was a psychiatric hospital in Talgarth, Wales It opened in 1906 and was formerly known as the Brecon and Radnor Joint Asylum or Mid Wales Counties Mental Hospital. It is in echelon style (narrow arrow) and at its peak could serve 1,000 patients. However, nearer the end of its life, in 1995, this had dwindled to 168. The site was also home to the Mid and West Wales College of Nursing and Midwifery and the Powys Drugs & Alcohol Council for substance misuse
As part of its services the hospital provided treatments for the elderly mentally ill; rehabilitation and continuing care; occupational therapy; day care facility; psychology; reflexology; physiotherapy; electro-convulsive therapy, chiropody and psychiatry.
With new health legislations coming into force in the 1980s/90s and 'Care in the Community the entire hospital was wound down during the 1990s and closed for good in 1999. Some facilities moved into nearby Bronllys Hospital (formally South Wales Sanitorium).
