    History:
    Pool Park was built as a manor house between 1826-29 for the second Lord Bagot. The house was sold to the Tate family (of Tate & Lyle) as a family home. In 1937 the house was sold again to the North Wales Counties Mental Hospital who developed the property into a hospital to relieve the overcrowded Denbigh Asylum. The hospital had accommodation for 87 patients. The hospital closed in 1990, shortly before the closure of its parent hospital.

    The Visit:
    Another day out, this time around the north of Wales. Visited with @David Hullton and a non member. Didn't venture too deep into this place as it is literally falling down in places, and it's full of bats.
    I know it's been covered before, but couldn't find a very recent report.

    Yeah it certainly is, amazed at its location too. Wouldn't think there was a hospital down that driveway.

    Some very nice shots there buddy, its incredibly difficult to correctly expose it from the inside as its completely dark with next to no light coming in

    I read the staircase had been removed? Or did I imagine that... No I didn't explore that deep! Shame really, was a bit of a rush job as the lads I went with wern't keen on things flying around. Will probably be returning eventually.

    Yeah it's not easy to light that place up, just did what I could with a cheap eBay Cree torch and the flash!

    It was still there a couple of months ago, removing it would be quite a mission I feel....

    Returned at weekend and I'm so glad I did... Can't believe how little of this place I saw on the previous visit! Bumped into a pair of other explorers there too, and would like to take this opportunity to apologize again for that piece of ceiling falling onto your head!
