...North Wales Hospital...

...Denbigh...

Designed by architect Carl Johan Aru to originally accommodate between 60 and 200 patients, the building dates back to 1848, and originally had its own farm and gasworks. Planned for closure by Enoch Powell from the 1960s, it was closed in sections from 1991 to 2002.

Now derelict, on October 31, 2008, Most Haunted did a live series, The Village of the Damned on location in the North Wales Hospital which spanned over the course of a week. The producers of the show were criticized by residents of Denbigh for slurs against the town and the hospital.

On 22 November 2008, during work to renovate the building site and convert it to apartments and residential properties, the building caught fire; it was later confirmed that the main hall of the hospital was destroyed. Arson is suspected.

Currently on the buildings at risk register, planning permission has currently lapsed, while Denbighshire Council are planning urgent repairs and to bill the current owners/developers.

After an aborted attempt to meet up with the SO'CC on the final leg of their Welsh jolly, I ended up here... One of the first big sites I did last year, but with no camera 1st time round I was always keen to get back and get some pix...

No sign of 'beardy' or the psycho security crew who were in residence when we were last here, turned out to be a really relaxed mooch...

      On the outskirts of Fishburn lies the derelict Winterton hospital. Winterton hospital used to be very big however most of its buildings were demolished and this part is the only building that remains of it. All of the windows are boarded up however when we got there it looked like someone had pulled the entire doorway off causing the whole thing to open making an entry so easy. Inside the building is in terrible condition, (similar to St. peter's) with collapsed floors, wallpaper peeling, water damage etc. We also didn't realise at the time that the building had asbestos but luckily we had masks so make sure to bring one if you're planning on going inside. We were unable to access the top floor due to the floor being so bad so we only got photos from the corridor as we came up the stairs. That all being said, winterton hospital does have a lot of history and it is a shame to see it left in such a poor state.

      Just off the A66 in Darlington, there is an abandoned farm called Little Burdon farm, it has been derelict for at least a decade. It consists of different buildings being from a farmhouse to old barns or stables. There's really two farmhouses, a red brick one and a more modern white house. It also looks like some refurbishment/demolition has taken place but again has been held off or abandoned. The farm was built around the 1830s and is grade 2 listed. There is no security here and is easy to get into all of the buildings. That being said the buildings are indeed derelict so some floors are dangerous and can't be accessed. In the white house building, part of the upstairs floor has been removed due to the refurbishment works but has been left standing as it is.  It also looks like the rooms have been stripped out and all electrics and gas pipes have been removed.

      On the outskirts of Middlesbrough there is an abandoned nursing home in a housing estate. The building was originally constructed in 1825 however it was not fully built until 1858. The use was originally a house however in the 1980s the owner sold the house and converted it into a nursing home. The home closed down in 2005 and has been empty since. Recent arson attempts have occurred at Normanby Hall and the place is well secure and hidden from the housing estate. All of the gardens and road to it are overgrown and makes it almost impossible to even know it is still there! The building is in derelict condition and there are currently no plans as of demolition or refurbishment, which is quite sad considering this is a spectacular looking house. 
       
      anyway here are the photos, enjoy!

      This place is not too far from where I live. i have heard all about it's history and decided to have a look inside and get some photos of the building itself. The place is an absolute death trap, ceiling's fallen through, water ingress all over etc. It started early life in 1900 as a roman catholic orphanage until 1940 when it became an approved borstal until 1984. During this period there has been reports of physical and sexual abuse which happened at St. Peter's over the years. in 1984 the school closed down and was sold for £130,000. The buyers bought the buildings and converted the main building into a nursing home for the elderly. Again this was in operation until closure in march 1999. The main building was demolished in 2016 due to a massive 9 hour fire and is only the gymnasium and the reception building that remain on the premises. 
       
      As you can see in the photos the building is severely damaged due to dampness and vandalism.
