UK Benson Farm - Shropshire August 2016

Recommended Posts

Built early 1600's added on to around 1850, bad condition but structure has been temporarily strengthened and building covered over by present owner. Lovely building but the outside unfortunately pretty much hidden by the covering. The owner did have plans to knock it down, thankfully he didn't. That's all the info I have on it.

 

Looked over by the owners house I thought i'd better go see if they were in and ask permission to take a look, thankfully they said it was fine and even offered me a drink, bonus!

      Hey everyone, so I'm pretty sure everyone's heard of this place so i dont really need to explain much about it, but if you haven't, below is a brief history of Denbigh Mental Asylum.
       
      Grade 2 Listed building.
      Built work started in 1844
      Building work completed in 1848
       
      Built to house up to 200 patients with psychiatric illnesses. In the early 1900's it housed 1537 patients (Approx).
      The hospital had its own farm and gas works.
      Planned for closure by Enoch Powellin the 1960's, however it only began closing in sections between 1991-1995.

       
      Nurses Quarters:

       
       

       
      This is genuinely one of the best condition buildings that i have ever explored.

       
       

       
      Most of the lower floor windows were covered in either ivy or thick vines, so it got quite dark in some sections of the building.

       
      Now for the hospital itself, my personal favorite photos:

      Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke.

      Snowdown closed in 1987

      Established in 1926, G.L. Murphy was a family run business and supplied bespoke machinery to the tanning industry, as well as building rag cutting and cable stripping machinery.  The company also provide refurbishment and renovation works for various machinery types.

      Built in 1871 but had been refurbished at some point.
       Now, I don't do heights.. So I was chuffed to see my mate practically run towards it in excitement and go first. It was pretty high and the grated floor was not ideal if you wanted to avoid looking down. 
      The tower probably stands around 40-50 ft but exact measurements are unknown at this point.
      Apart from the odd clanging of metal under our footsteps and how wobbly it was, it was a good first climb like this for me!
      Got some snaps as usual, enjoy!
