    Pool Park Asylum
    Ruthin, North Wales
    February 2015

    Pool Park Asylum was not always an asylum or hospital but originally a house, built in 1862 in a mock Tudor style, now a Grade II listed building almost beyond repair. No expense was spared on the interior, where elaborate wood panelling graces the rooms and corridors with the main feature being a magnificent oak staircase with ornamental wood carvings, and two flights of stairs mirrored left and right leading to the grand entrance hall. Apparently the staircase originally came from a former bishop's residence.

    Around 1930-1940 Pool Park was bought by the local health authority with the intention of converting it into a convalescent home for 80 male patients, and then during the war this was increased to 120 with a prisoner of war camp also being built in the grounds.
    In 1949 the house became a mental hospital as an overflow for nearby Denbigh Asylum. Later on female patients were also being treated here. Pool Park Asylum finally closing it's doors in 1989.

    The east side of the main building has faced terrific water damage, with the flooring and roofing both having collapsed, yet remarkably the main entrance hall still remains in a reasonable condition.

    Anyhow, that's enough about the building take a look at my shots below and enjoy!

    Each time I've wanted to go, I've ended up spending too much time in Denbigh and have ran out of daylight.
