    A bit of History

    The North Wales Hospital, locally known as 'Denbigh Mental' was a hospital for people with psychiatric illnesses located in Denbighshire, Wales. :crazy

    Designed by architect Carl Johan Aru to originally accommodate between 60 and 200 patients, the building dates back to 1848, and originally had its own farm and gasworks.

    Planned for closure by Enoch Powell from the 1960s, it was closed in sections from 1991 to 2002.

    Now derelict, on October 31, 2008, Living TV's 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 criticized by residents of Denbigh for slurs against the town and the hospital.

    On 22 November 2008, during work to renovate the building site and convert it to apartments and residential properties, the building caught fire; it was later confirmed that the main hall of the hospital was destroyed. Arson is suspected. :eek:

    The Explore

    With it being a nice day for a mooch I met up with Tom Sherman and Telf1980 whilst in the area. A big thanks to both for a brilliant day out and the guided tour. :thumb However, I was a little on edge with the stories that I had heard about Elwyn the secca guard and his mad dog :(

    Hope you enjoy..................
