Visited with Humpa

Saint Cadoc's Hospital (Welsh: Ysbyty Sant Cadog) is located in Caerleon on the northern outskirts of the city of Newport.

The building was designed by Alfred J. Wood FRIBA, London and named after Saint Cadoc. Saint Cadoc's church is located in the town.

The hospital, which opened in 1906 as the Newport Borough Asylum, was built to accommodate up to 350 patients. Extensive outbuildings were later added on the site, but since 2005 the number of residents has been very small with the growing emphasis on care in the community.

St Cadoc's Hospital in Caerleon has been featured as a location of episodes in the BBC television programmes Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Being Human.
I'd never really come across this one and only heard about it thanks to a message from Tumbles whilst in South Wales recently, big thanks for the heads up and the pointers! Certainly an interesting explore with parts of the building still being in use, sadly didn't get any photos in the hall as some people were playing badminton in there when we visited. As the rest of the place shuts I hope people will have a look around some of the rest, it's nice and old looking for the most part.
