Whitchurch Hospital Chapel

Whitchurch Hospital Chapel

The notes below lifted from the Listed Building database. It was designated a Grade II listed building on 15th April 1994:
‘This is the chapel to Whitchurch Hospital, originally the Cardiff Lunatic Asylum (NPRN 31924), and was built in the period 1902-1908. It is detached from the main hospital building and faces the ornate entrance block across a tree-lined forecourt or garden. The chapel is now disused and was used as a store in 2002.
This is a loosely Gothick red brick building with bathstone detail under deep slate roofs. It consists of an aisled nave and a chancel, and features a castellated chimney tower. It was built to accommodate all 750 patients and 150 staff.’
