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.’

    Hey there,

    Just wondering whether anyone knows what’s going on with the chapel now and whether it is up for sale or anything?

    Hi Dean

    Good question!
    I am not sure myself – anyone else know?
    Thanks for your comment

    Reason for asking is because I’m interested in taking it over. It’s definitely not used, and is just a derelict building which I know wouldn’t sell.

    It would be an absolute miracle if they would hand it over without a sale and I could do it up and make it into a church again!
