    Spent a lovely morning back in September last year exploring this crazy place with Paul 2129 (had a great time round here mate). We had an early close call where Paul spotted a bloke looking up at the Hospital with is arms crossed. Luckily he never seen us and we dropped down to ground level and lost ourselves in the corridors and rooms. Don't know if was Elwyn, just glad we never found out. After that we never seen another soul in the whole six hours we spent in a nice and relaxed mooch. Hell of a place this one, crumbling around you, overgrow and stripped. Yet still holding alot of charm as you wonder around his huge site. Liked the Nurses Home also, an explore in it's own right. The old girl may well be on the brink of collapse but she still has something to give.

    The North Wales Hospital (locally known as Denbigh Mental or Denbigh Asylum) is a Grade II listed building. Construction started in 1844 and was completed in 1848. Once a hospital for people with psychiatric illnesses, at its maximum capacity it could house 200 patients.
    Designed by architect Thomas Full James to originally accommodate between 60 and 200 patients, the hospital originally had its own farm and gasworks. Planned for closure by Enoch Powell during the 1960s, it was closed in sections from 1991 to 2002.
    Currently on the buildings at risk register, planning permission has currently lapsed. In 2011 the building was at risk of collapsing and no action was taken by the owners after an urgent works notice was issued, Denbighshire Council had no choice but to carry out repairs on the building which has reached £930,000. In 2013, Denbighshire Council voted to press ahead with a compulsory purchase order on the building; the council, however, wish to reach an agreement with the owners before taking legal action. An estimated cost of repairing the building is £1 million.
    On October 31, 2008, Most Haunted did a live series, The Village of the Damned on location in the North Wales Hospital which spanned over the course of a week The producers of the show were criticised by residents of Denbigh for slurs against the town and the hospital.
    Could eplain the much photographed writing on one of the walls of this place.

    Cool stuff man! Shame i couldn't make this one, never seen those water towers or whatever they are in the last pic in any other reports before :thumb yeah nice one for not getting caught as well, can't stand all these muppets (think it's mostly the faceache explorers tbh) going on about "i can't wait to meet Elwyyn" etc thought the whole point was NOT to get caught.

    Thanks mate, glad you liked them. I'm with you on the not getting caught. Especially not be someone as aggro as Elwyyn.
