Patti's bedroom - the "six-bedder"

Reading through Jean’s account of her time at Craig-y-nos it struck me how the sanatorium regime varied according to the year you were in.

This is one possible explanation why so many people have such different memories of the place.

Take for example her account of freely visiting patients in the “six bedder”, Adelina Patti's former bedroom used for young female adults.

During my four years there in the early 1950’s this was strictly forbidden. Indeed I never did see inside the “six bedder” until I visited Craig-y-nos last year , some 50 years later.

Today it is derelict, and used for ghost hunting seances.
