    Still very vague.....what locations is it you need help locating?

    One point of advice though, people are not just going to hand you location information randomly, you need to partake in the forum by posting reports of the places you have visited, that way people will know you are a genuine person and not security/police etc etc.

    I had looked at the report forum but unfortunately it says I don't have the privilege to post there?. I haven't visited many as I am struggling with locations. I have visited red dress manor, it's all over grown had to climb through barbed wire and the place has just been tampered with so much. So sad people can't leave things alone for others to see and enjoy. Also visited denbigh Lunatic Asylum such a huge ground to cover there and also quite dangerous at this given time. I'm interested in the crooked cottage which through research iv narrowed it down to ruthin area dyfrydd? Then there's the cloud house which iv researched to snowdonia iv gone into a lot of agricultural searches on these. There is an old water Mill in ruthin and I don't know if the crooked cottage could possibly be near or I'm just completely cold and my research is extremely poor? I'm not asking for exact locations just a little help in the right direction. Thank you for taking tome to message me.

    I do not really know Wales very well, but I am sure one of the locals will be a long at some point to offer some guidance about the places you have mentioned.

    In terms of posting reports, on the main page of the forum, there is a list of all the relevant sections..Asylums & Hospitals, Industrial, Leisure etc etc....If you go into that section, then click 'Post new thread', you will be able to put a report together, which will get added to the moderation queue until someone logs on and approves it.

    I am thinking of popping back to The North Wales Hospital (not Denbigh Mental), for a final 'goodbye to my first ever asylum' so i'd be interested to see your photos as they are the most recent.

    Yeah I am hoping so. The research is the hardest part but it does give a huge amount of satisfaction when you finally find what you've been looking for. My trip to the Denbigh asylum didn't go quite to plan. Took a lot of time finding it and got there when it was about to get dark. There were all warnings everywhere and they have done a really good job of securing the place. When I later returned I had information from a friend on a way to get in from a different side. I am hoping to do this at the weekend. (When it's light). I do get a little nervous but it just adds to the adrenalin. I know it's extremely dangerous to try and walk around inside part of it as it is completely falling to ruins from rather inside. I'm thinking if I go in with a hard hat and high vis vest I will look like a surveyor? Just kidding. Haha. So that was your first ever experience? Cool. Did you get any pictures from then to compare to now? Il trade when I get myself in there.

    I visited The North Wales Hospital the other day, it's looking rather trashed now. I got a fair few pictures so I'll post a report at some point this week.

    I started a report but can't upload pictures from my phone?. The adrenaline is just amazing. And thank you for welcoming me. This site seems very strict with new people and I understand why but nice to be welcomed. Thank you.

    Are you sure you were at the right place...I can't believe that they have sealed the place that well, it's been majorly open for years, even when they put the new roof on it.

    You need to use a photo sharing site such as Flickr or Photobucket, then link the BB code from each picture back to here. There's a guide on here somewhere if you can find it.

    I walked straight into Denbigh and every building on site, are you sure you have the right place? It isn't sealed up...
