When Whitchurch Hospital opened in 1908, it was Cardiff’s largest mental health hospital. It had around 750 patients, where women who had children out of wedlock were housed and some schizophrenics were locked up indefinitely. The main hospital covered 5 acres and consisted of 10 wards, 5 for men and 5 women. Whitchurch Hospital finally closed its doors in April 2016. The building has been mostly derelict since closing down after more than 100 years of providing services to patients.
