The History


Saint Cadoc's Hospital is located in Caerloen on the northern outskirts of the city of Newport.

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 provides a number of mental health services, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, Adult Mental Health Services are provided by 11 Community Mental Health Teams and Elderly Mental Health Services provided by 5 multi-disciplinary Community Mental Health Teams.


The Explore


After seeing this crop up on here and spammed a little on Facebook, whilst in Wales with @Candid checking out some other stuff we thought we would check this out too. We already had a bit of intel on how to get in but found this way well and truly locked up.

Bugger.

A different way in needed to be used so we had a good look around and eventually found an open door and walked in, only to be greeted by a nurse, oh bollocks we thought expecting to be kicked out. All she actually did was smile and say hello, result.

We found the place to be in very nice condition and very similar in interior design to Goodmayes in Ilford. A lot of the original features where still in place including the “Facebook famous” operating chair.

After a few hours wandering around we left through the main admin door and headed off on our merry way.


Enjoy the pics

Cracking stuff, thanks for sharing.

That hall is something special by the usual standards. Nice work.

Chair does indeed seem to get around, reminds me of the one at Pool Park that someone managed to lug up on to the roof at one point.

Nicely covered! :)

Same as the Sevs bed

I suspect we will be seeing less of the place, rather than more if they are planning on opening more of it up, as we have been lead to believe.
I don't think the Mortuary or Chapel will go anywhere soon. It is odd they are opening more. This place was due to close in 2007/2008. Then again Whitchurch was originally going to stay open till 2021 and then they pulled the plug fairly rapidly. Quite a few services from Whitchuch have moved here I think. Time for Cefn..

Whitchurch is a different health board from St Cadocs so the two are not related. All that is happening, is that there is a ever growing requirement for inpatient services, coupled with the relocation of services from elsewhere.. St Cadocs often takes patients from miles away in areas where they demolished their own hospitals!!

Hi all!!

Now, as i posted the other day, i personally caught someone in the old wards last friday afternoon [17th Feb 2017] They were very pleasant and friendly, but were escorted downstairs and ejected by facilities staff. I then spoke to senior management about the above incident.

As a result, since monday, work has proceeding at an unheard of pace, to secure the entire upstairs area, to include ALL of the old wards. This work has now, [as of this afternoon] been completed, and the place is now TOTALLY secure.

Just thought i would post this, as, i know that none of you intended any harm, and indeed, helped keep the place safe, so i just wanted to inform you all of the above, as i know that some of you drive hundreds of miles to take photos, and i would hate anyone to spend a lot of money on petrol and the like just to be disappointed.

I suppose from your point of view it was good while it lasted!!!

Thanks all..

john.
