Bron Y Garth Hospital and Prison - Penrhyndeudraeth, Gwynedd
Dark shadowy figures have been seen darting from room to room!

If you can imagine the harshest of conditions in the most hardiest of locations then Bron Y Garth is certainly that.  This old Victorian Hospital, mortuary and workhouse set in the landscape of the Welsh countryside will leave nothing to the imagination for those of you that join us on a ghost hunt here.  

The poor and destitute that were brought to Bron Y Garth hospital really did endure a grim existence.  Originally built as a workhouse, the best evidence of how life was for them lies within the hospital wing with its original features including punishment techniques and overwhelming darkness. The hospital has been untouched for many, many years and along with the mortuary and the expansive hospital wards, there really is so much to investigate.

Your Ghost Hunt at Bron Y Garth Hospital & Mortuary

As soon as you enter this foreboding complex of buildings you will get a sense of its past inhabitants.  Built in 1838 to house the poor and then developed as a workhouse, the grey slate stone buildings do nothing to project any welcome.  In fact, its location in the vast Welsh countryside only deepens the feelings of what life must have been like for the inhabitants of Bron Y Garth Hospital. As you walk around the vast hospital corridors and spend time in the different wards and dedicated patient areas you will grow to understand the conditions imposed on them.  

You will have the opportunity to ghost hunt in all of the areas including the hospital and mortuary.

Ghosts of Bron Y Garth Hospital & Mortuary

There has been a lot of paranormal evidence experienced here.  In the two-bedded ward a male entity is thought to do his utmost to get rid of visitors either by snarling at them or moving objects around.  There have been experiences of people being touched in the mortuary area and others have witnessed seeing shadows and ghostly apparitions. It doesn't seem to matter what part of the building you are in as there are so many reports of activity throughout the complex of this huge location.

History of Bron Y Garth Hospital & Mortuary

Bron Y Garth Hospital, also known as Ffestiniog Union Workhouse, was originally built by the Victorians in 1839 to house the poor and destitute. It continued until 1948 when it was later developed as a National Health Service Hospital.  The hospital eventually closing its doors completely in 2009.  You can clearly see these changes and developments throughout the fabrics of the building.  

Within the complex is a prison where the original features are still very evident.  The punishment regimes are still visible and you will not need your imagination to understand how harsh it must have been for anybody staying there.  There is also a cottage on site which was thought to house those with infectious diseases.  The mortuary still has its viewing window and fragments of the identity tickets placed on a deceased patient's foot.
