UK N.K.P.S... 'Working up a sweat for the baby Jesus' Feb '14

Recommended Posts

12 months or so ago me n NK saw this place pop up elsewhere on t'interweb and immediately wanted it, BADLY!! But all our research was to no avail and after a few months of red herrings and head scratching we tucked it away in the back of our minds and got on with other moochings...

And then it pops up again... Cue some frantic research activity from the wellied wonder (she's very good at it!!) and BOOM!! There it is!!

RESULT!!!

:D

Instantly all the previous plans for the weekend go out the window, we're in the motor and tearing up the tarmac at some ungodly hour, pouring strong coffee down our necks and chugging on roll ups all in the name of...

...Working up a sweat for the baby Jesus...

We must aplologise in advance for the ridiculous amount of photos here!! It was VERY hard for the pair of us to choose which ones to use so we're chuckin loads at ya!!! :)

      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!
