    The Lluesty hospital is situated on Old Chester Road in Holywell,originally built as a workhouse in the late 1830s,it has not been used since the new Holywell Community Hospital opened in 2008 about a mile down the road .

    Auctioneers say there was intense interest in the site, selling well in excess of its £150,000 guide price at £275,000.

    Speaking ahead of the auction, local historian Brian Taylor noted: "It is a feature of Holywell.

    "There aren't many of these workhouses left in the country."

    The original workhouse complex and adjoining chapel were Grade II listed 20 years ago.

    The early Victorian building was designed by St Asaph architect John Welch and used as a workhouse for the poor of 14 parishes. It was built by Thomas Hughes of Liverpool and the contracter was Samuel Parry. There may have been alterations in 1869 and it was enlarged to the right in 1902. There were also some modern extensions during it's conversion to hospital use. It has the standard workhouse grid plan with separate courtyards for men and women and transverse and spinal ranges with a linking central octagon
    The buildings are set in grounds of around 7.4 acres which have been allocated for housing development. It is thought up to 70 houses could be built on the site.

    In 2006, television personality Cilla Black visited Lluesty as part of a BBC Wales programme called Coming Home with Cilla Black.




    We came across this place whilst heading towards a care home in the middle of nowhere and it looked rather nice from the outside so we headed in for a look, In most parts its in fairly bad shape but there is the odd photogenic bit
