    HISTORY
    Under an Amendment Act set in 1834 all parishes in Wales and England were grouped together into Poor Law Unions. Each Poor Law Union had to provide a place where people who were unable to support themselves could live and work, known as the workhouse. Because of this Lluesty Hospital was erected during 1839 by the Holywell Poor Law Union.


    In 1965 the north side became the Hollywell community hospital which operated for 43 years before being closed in 2008. The site has its own on-site parish designed by a proclaimed local architect in 1883-4 and was a feature of the site for many years (though now much of the flourish is covered by boards!).

    Upon its closure the site was owned by NHS Wales and was sold at auction in 2011 with full planning for 69 dwellings for the seemingly low figure of £275,000. The buyers are said to have sold the North half of the site within a few months of ownership for an “undisclosed amount” presumably making a quick profit!

    EXPLORE
    explored with @Motionless Escapes @LancashireExplorations @godgp78 and @CrazyNinjaSquirrel
    So failure to access kinmel hall led us to search for another final explore to end the day in north wales, scouring the locations map on the forum we saw this place and it was on the way home so it was a plan, we jumped in the car and 20 minutes later found it no problem .
    Although a little late in the day and not taking into account the sun setting at about seven o clock we headed for the workhouse section and explored it fast then headed for the man hospital block the light was fading fast so armed with a head torch and a few hand helds we carried on into darkness getting the best piks we could with the gear we had unfortunately we missed the big staircase and mosaic floors so a re visit is very likely anyway on with some piks
