Does this photo show the ghost of a former asylum patient?
Located in Bronllys, Wales, the 113-year-old Brecon and Radnor Lunatic Asylum once housed mentally ill patients who endured everything from excruciating lobotomies to imprisonment in padded cells. The asylum was eventually converted into a prison and served as a Prisoner of War camp in World War II. Abandoned for 16 years, it now sits in crumbling isolation. A man strolling by the abandoned facility took this eerie photo.
“Maybe it was a patient who had a lobotomy or perhaps a soldier patient from the war or maybe a Nazi prisoner,” the Mirror reports the witness as saying. “Whatever it was, it certainly gave me a fright.”
