By a World in Ruins
Once in a while a house appears that is just something else and this house was one of those. Visited with Ninja Kitten one cold November day. I know a lot of history to this house but will hold it back to protect the house. Giving too much detail of its history along with names would compromise it. The photographs can speak for themselves. A veritable feast of dusty vintage artefacts locked in another time. The bedroom pictured here looked as if it had remained as it was when the very young soldier perished in WW1. An organic museum if ever there was one in existence. A museum to a fallen soldier.
Hope you enjoy
Hello once again everybody, now I'll get everything right on the first try (with BB-Codes and all).
This is another Mansion, where I sadly don't have much information about either. I hope you enjoy the pictures nontheless.
Instagram would be @ofcdnb for anyone interested.

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
