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.
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:
Thanks for reading,
Make sure to check out my youtube channel Jake Alan Craig for the video and my instagram @exploring_with_jake for regular abandoned photos.
An abandoned beacon in the baltic sea. There are two of it. One 1000m and the other one in 4000m distance from the runway.
Ther were used to enlarge the range of the runway ...so the pilots could navigate easier to the short runway.
Build and used by the NVA. The army of the former GDR... (DDR).
Being a regular at the Nurburgring and this place being brought to my attention by a non explorer, the perfect opportunity after a day of storms arose!
Putting this one off all week with temperatures reaching the 30s, the moment came on a somewhat stormy day to check this place out, taking full advantage of the slightly cooler – yet humid air.
My first explore out of the UK too which made for something special, despite being a derp it was still something different and unique for myself in comparison to the UK.
There’s not much left of the place and the history is scarce, however it looks as though work began rebuilding the place but the cost of development was a spanner in the works.
The basement also contained a septic tank which is no longer allowed in the region, combining that with the nearest sewer being some distance away making development even more expensive.

Thankful there was enough remaining to grab some shots and at the same time have a good giggle
Splored With Lara,Trog and peaches
In the back area of the stage Lara found some costumes and the silliness began.
Beds began to roll up and down the corridors .
Better not to ask
I nearly ran straight into secca.
At first i thought it was another fool dressed up but as Sindbad
Then realized he was a Sihk Secca lol
This fella was either as deaf as a post or turned a blind eye & I wasnt fussed with either.
As was more to see and we put a bit of distance between us and the now named Turbanator.
Cheers for looking in
