Glanrhyd Hospital

A Memory of Bridgend

I worked in Glanrhyd (formerly known as Angleton) for 5 years between 1969 and 1974. It was here I met my wife Carol who worked in Penyfai Hospital. In 1974 I transferred to Bridgend General Hospital . Most of the old hospital buildings have sadly gone but the lodge in this picture still remains. The stores where I worked was to the rear of the lodge in this picture, it has regrettably now been demolished, as has Bridgend Hospital. A piece of history destroyed for ever.
