    Post Talgarth Asylum (inc. Church) - 03/10


    This is my first report so bare with me guys.

    Early on Wednesday morning me and Voohees set off on a last minute trip to Talgarth (mid Wales) as we had heard a lot of good things about the place. We weren't disappointed :)

    Im not going to post the history of this place as im sure you all know it, so on with the pictures. I know there have been a lot of posts on this place, but i havent seen any from inside the church yet.























    The Church












    We got so many great photos there i couldn't possibly post them all here. The rest are posted on our website

    The photos haven't been shopped (apart from a few tweaks), this is as we found it. Thanks for the positive reviews guys

    I'm not a fan of hospitals but I really, really like your pics. Great to see the church photos too...I love religious sites!

    Looking at your website, where you really have covered the place well - I am a bit saddened that there is now nothing maintained, nothing is secure at the Mid Wales. Even the admin block and chapel have been broken into and vandalised and it won't be long before far worse is done. From a place that was really well preserved this time last year to the state its in now really makes me angry - and those who sold the slates and ran away should be shot!

    But really great shots, UKUrbEx.
