Hidden by trees and only accessible via small country roads, we found this beautiful old hospital building forgotten and decayed in the Welsh countryside. Originally owned by Sir Walter Bagot, a prominent Staffordshire barrister. In 1828 the place was rebuilt in the Elizabethan style, as it is seen today, as a residence for the second Lord Bagot.
After being sold it opened in 1937 as relief hospital and convalescent home for 87 patients from the overcrowded much larger Asylum D in nearby vicinity. During the war the hospital housed 120 patients. At that time a Prisoner of War (POW) camp was established on the grounds. The place was abandoned in 1989, sold to a builder in 1992, but is still standing empty and derelict. It is a Grade 2 listed building and not possible to demolish.
The interior has an amazing fine oak staircase and there are beautiful wood carvings and many nice details everywhere. Just the facade itself is very beautiful. Great explore and stunning building.
