    built in 1826 for the second lord bagot and apparently lost in a wager ,in the 1930,s it was purchased by the local health authority as a convalescent home for 80 male patients , during ww2 a POW camp was housed nearby for italian prisoners of war ,these POWS would of most likely helped out on local farms , coming from a country that was still predominantly agricultural .
    in 1949 the hospital was aquired by the fledgling NHS to alleviate the pressure on denbigh Lunatic Asylum which was struggling to cope . in the 1960s the death nell for these places was sounded , by the 1970s these asylums were progressively closed down .
    in 1989 pool parc closed its doors for good , in 1992 the place was bought by a developer to turn into apartments , legal wrangles with the local council has put back these plans resulting in this complex falling into ruin. pool parc is well hidden by the surrounding forest and only plays host to local wildlife and an inquisitive bat who likes to annoy urban explorers like myself . visited with Cazel#HT pool 1.jpg pool 2.jpg pool 3.jpg pool 4.jpg pool 5.jpg pool 6.jpg pool 7.jpg pool 8.jpg pool 9.jpg pool 10.jpg pool 12.jpg pool 13.jpg pool 14.jpg pool 15.jpg pool 16.jpg pool 17.jpg pool 18.jpg pool 19.jpg pool 20.jpg pool 21.jpg pool 34.jpg pool 23.jpg pool 24.jpg pool 25.jpg pool 26.jpg pool 27.jpg pool 28.jpg pool 29.jpg pool 31.jpg pool 33.jpg

    enjoyed the view of the surrounding area from the high point of the chimney stack.....but lots of interesting sites inside the hospital.......the amazing carved woodwork, the strange fungi growing on the walls and an empty bottle of Moët left in a crumbling corridor. More pics to follow xx
