  1. Pool Parc, near Ruthin, dates back to the 16th Century when it was home to the Salesbury family and the manor house was rebuilt for William Bagot, 2nd Baron Bagot, in the 1820s. It was apparently lost in a bet by the Bagot family and it was later sold to the District Health Authority, becoming a convalescent home and then an asylum, used as an overspill for North Wales Hospital in Denbigh before closing in 1989. Have also found an old pic of what it looked like in better times It is very dark inside and if you are doing the upper floors take a good torch as someone has removed the odd tread in the temporary staircase
  2. Been waiting all week to go here only to find it's all been boarded back . so just some from the outside.☹️
  3. Visited with Raz & Fatpanda Bit of History; Originally owned by Sir Walter Bagot, the current buildings were rebuilt in the late 1820′s. It was acquired by the North Wales Counties Mental Hospital and opened in 1937 to accommodate 80+ patients to relieve the overcrowding at the much larger Denbigh Asylum. It eventually closed in 1990 and has laid derelict ever since. It would appear that some building work has, at some stage been attempted, but then simply left. We approached stealthily as possible up the private road with FatPanda's bass system shaking the very ground beneath the car... The Explore; Once out of the car and my headache beginning to reside, we nipped under a bush and found ourselves stood outside a very attractive white building. My first impression was something off of Heartbeat (Welsh Version probably called something like "HLleysgry LleLlen" as they love their double L ) and as you walk in the door you are greeted by some serious staircase porn. So after spending 20 mins dribbling over it we moved on the the rest of the building. I say building but building is a very loose statement, perhaps 6 million seperate parts held together in close formation... Unstable as fook. Stayed on the roof for all of 20 seconds before legging it back down. Upper floors feel a bit like a bouncy castle, only this bouncy castle is 20ft in the air and covered in nails and of course, my favourite asbestos. Not the kind of thing you want at your 6 year olds birthday party right? All in all a cool day out but the staircase is pissing me right off because the architect was either an idiot or he thought "You know what, one day someones going to want to take pictures of this so im going to build it on a slant" so none of my pics are straight - Moan over, heres the rest of the pics Thanks for looking

  5. I had friends down from Kent for the weekend and we managed a 350+ mile round trip around north and mid Wales. We left the house at 2am and got back at 8.30pm. We had 7 places on our list but knew there would be some let downs so the rest were for back up. I will put up a report on the first place shortly but as we were only there not long before we heard the alarm I didn't managed to take that many internal photos. The next place we now call the Alarm Farm as soon as I opened the door (Unlocked) something fell behind and a siren started sounding very loudly above my head, so we just jumped back into the car and headed to Pool Parc. The place is meant to be haunted and the clouds done their best to make it look that way. We took some externals and I headed for the entry point and was in and managed to open up somewhere for the rest to get in. All bar the stairs and a few other odds and ends there's not much in the place, its still worth a look and I plan to go back again and with more time take a better look. https://www.flickr.com/photos/cunningplan/sets/72157644320465919/ Thanks for looking
  6. 2013: I believe bastards and thieves have driven this place further into the ground :mad: 2011: So kicking off a few urbexes with another epic Welsh adventure with the mrs. Set in the lovely valleys of North Wales, Pool Park is a lovely mooch. We spent a good few hours in here, and kudos to her for finding an open access point. Formally part of the Bagot estate, Pool Parcs Elizabethan dates back to 1826. The Tates from the sugar company, Tate and Lyle moved in some years later. In about 1930 the surrounding farms and land were sold on. It was used as a home for the mentally infirm from 1937, with the last residents leaving in 1988, the last activity I can find is in about 1992. We headed to Denbigh afterwards but the weather sent us home... The EPIC staircase took my breath away! #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10 #11 #12 More At: http://www.flickr.com/photos/landie_man/sets/72157627870773696/
  7. Another one from my intense Belgian trip and probably the biggest surprise of the trip for me at least. It was once a large buzzing factory owned by Du Parc, a stockings and lingerie manufacturer but closed a good few years back. Scouting the place out it was pouring with rain and humid as hell, we spent about fifteen minutes sheltered under a canopy on the outside of the main building before going round to try and find a way in and once we were in the humidity played merry hell steaming up lenses all over the place. But we didn't let it put us off and what at first glance seemed like a stripped, dark pit of a place eventually opened up and the more we poked around the more goodness there was to be found....this is a proper oldschool factory with oldschool stuff and proper tasty decay, just the sort of thing I love. A place I would love to visit again! You may be noticing a theme that I do like my industry a fair bit... More here http://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/ ... 725940120/
