Sadly I didn't see the living legend that is Elwyn but I did hear someone walking around outside with what sounded like a rather large dog going from the barking.

I had one job on for the day that was in Ruthin and as the only other thing that is nearby is Pool Park and I was in there a month or so ago I decided to see how bad things had got at Denbigh in the last couple of years

I was surprised at how fucked it is, the demo/restoration work has trashed the place

The North Wales Lunatic Asylum was the first psychiatric institution built in Wales; construction began in 1844 and completed in 1848 in the town of Denbigh. The U-shaped Tudorbethain style hospital was built due to the spreading word of mistreatment of Welsh people in English asylums; The North Wales Hospital would be a haven for welsh speaking residents to seek treatment without prejudice or a language barrier.
And here is a video of how the place was before it became a complete derp

Nice shots!

It seems Baron Von Beard hasn't been seen there for awhile...before the demo/clearance work started a sighting was almost guaranteed!

Great set mate. I don't care how much of a mess she's in, I've explored worse and loved it here. Nice set mate and a touching video too. I think us lot forget sometimes that despite what these places become they were once homes, work places and livelihoods for so many. Maybe a little respect is due in recognition for what North Wales Hospital stood for. It may have fallen into a complete ruin that most of us turn our noses up at now but I'll bet seeing it would bring a tear to the eye of someone who'd spent their working life there.

I suppose it doesnt really matter how fucked a place is, when you have modern buildings with no character to them at all. This has a lot of that.
