Another Student visit

March 29th, 2012 by Admin Leave a reply »

Yesterday morning we had another group visit by Dr Tracey Loughran, lecturer in History at Cardiff University, this time with some second year History students.

We made a start with Tim’s talk on the history of Whitchurch with Dr Ian Beech also sharing his knowlege with the group.

Ian telling us about the Dr Goodall years

I then gave a presentation on the history of drug treatments in psychiatry.

We then moved from the old West ward to the main hall where we heard about the concerts that used to take place and saw the future plans for accommodation.

The weather was fantastic so we finished off the morning with a tour around the outside of the hospital

Thank you to all who came along and those who helped make it another great visit.

    Really interesting trip. Learning about the hospital in depth really gave me an insight into the way asylums operate/have operated in the past. Seeing the old building helped me to visualise the living conditions of patients in the past and the tour and the talks were very informative. Thanks very much.
