    Post Mid Wales Asylum, Talgarth


    The last minute trip started at one am, meeting Dreamworx and a little later Sasperella and his Mrs Mex



    The walk up to the old hospital.









    After a couple of hours we went back in to the dying town.







    After 5 hours sleep at the Bell Hotel we met sinnerman and Tumbles. (Bell Hotel is highly recomended 18 a night including breafast.)







    Mortuary shot via the rear window.





    Ect Suite.



















    Shots from the water tower.

    Great report, i really like the early morning shots.

    Real shame to see all the roofs are stripped. Surprised they want to keep so little of this place, its a grand old place.

    Thumbs up


    Another brill report which doesn't disappoint. It's depressing to see the roofs stripped. Looks almost deliberately done to speed-up the rate of decay & damp penetration! :(

    Quality pics -some new areas I've not seen anyways :)

    Nice work for getting up the water tower too. Was tempted, but wimped out for fear of being spotted

    Ta for posting ol' chap!
