    Visited all 3 Asylums with Speed and Rooks.
    This was our first site of the day. When we got there i was well impressed when i seen the building its gorgeous. I was going to get some photos from out side on the way out. But sadly we were in a bit of a rush. The bits we seen were mostly very stripped but the corridor and arches and other bits about the building made up for this.

    Our second site of the day was Deva we met up with BenWRX and he gave us a nice tour around. Thanks mate. :thumb

    I had seen a few reports but this place was better and bigger than i had imagined. Some of the front building have started to be demolished so i am not sure how long this place has left. Our visit was cut a bit short but we still had a good look around.

    Denbigh was to be our third and final site for the day. It was starting to rain and i was getting tired after only getting about 1hrs sleep the night before. For a long time i have seen photos and said to myself i must get up there. We had a walk around for about a hour and then it was starting to get dark. The place is very trashed and has been raped for led the last few years. I did not enjoy this explore but i think there is a lot more to see and i will return on a nice summers day.
