Mid Wales Hospital, Talgarth – 35mm

A little trip to Mid Wales Hospital. The site continues to deteriorate and little seems to have been achieved by the new owners with pushing through planning applications.  This winter might just see most of the buildings collapsing both internally and externally.  Shot on my Canon EOS 5 SLR with Kodak C41 B&W film.

The 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
