The mid county hospital in Wales is quite possibly the most interesting and enthralling location I've ever been to. The crumbling Victorian style decor, long winding corridors and the infamous clock tower have long made this site a fascinating place to explore.
The site was abandoned in 1999 and after failed plans to revive the site it has since stood derelict for over 10 years.
Sadly, most of the buildings have seen their fair share of vandalism over the years and since the slate roof was sold many years ago nature has really started to take it's toll.
The asylum was home to over 352 patients in its prime and was also home to military personnel after world war 2. Severe overcrowding saw two additional wards constructed in 1955 but after the hospital struggled to implement and abide by new health legislation, it's closure was all but certain.
My time within the asylums walls were filled with mixed emotion. It's only apparent now that in it's current state of disrepair, it's the buildings that require care. There is a bone chillingly cold atmosphere that fills the corridors and rooms as rot and decay slowly reclaim this place.
As of writing this post, there are currently no plans in place that will see the asylum brought back to fruition.
