    Report - North Wales Hosptial, Denbigh - February 2020

History: it’s been done to the death on here so I won’t go in to detail it’s also well documented all over the internet...

    Report - Intermediate School for Girls. Cowbridge, Glamorgan. Aug 2017

    I'm still umming and ahhing which of my previous explores I should report on here. I've picked this one as it hasn't been 'done to death' on 28DL and I'm surprised how much info I found about the place while researching today. fyi, Cowbridge is a small historical town 10miles West of Cardiff...

    For a few trips Wrysgan had been our back up mine on the way back to the car from another mine but turned out to be our back up mine following Croesor on the other side of the hill. Also while Wrysgan is one of the closest mines from the parking spot its still a bloody darn good hike!! Defending...

    Cardiff Newbie

    Hello, I just joined 28DL today! I've been exploring for a while, about 15years I suppose. I grew up in Snowdonia, went to uni in Bristol and now live in Cardiff. Explored a lot while at uni, and was pretty active on the forums then too. I still explore quite a bit here in South Wales and up...

    Bryn Salem Chapel, Cippyn, South Wales

    So after finding this place online I knew I had to take a trip to this place. We were staying in the local area so it was the perfect opportunity. After a ten minute walk down a bridal path (completely off the beaten track) we found our Chapel. (I am presuming it ended up closing its doors...

    Report - Moel Fferna Slate Mine - Llangollen - May '19

    A grand day out and another mine ticked off! every time I'm blown away by the sheer size of the chambers that really have to be seen to be believed or even just to get a scale of how huge they are, the countless man hours put in to extract the slate doesn't bear thinking about. Theres a few nice...

    Report - Kinmel Hall - North Wales - May 2018

    After a few failed attempts last year, we managed to get into Kinmel Hall and had a nice chilled out explore. Even met a few fellow explorers inside. I think we may have been the last explorers to get access to the place as some people moved in the following weekend, and I've heard access has...

    Report - Penarth Slate Mine - Llangollen - Jan '19

    It seemed a great idea at the time... On the drive back from Cwmorthin Slate Mine in north Wales we though instead of sit in Friday evening traffic around Birmingham why don't we kill an hour at Penarth? Well having never been before i had no idea the hike up to the adit was worse than the hike...

    Report - Whitchurch Hospital, Cardiff - Jan 2019

    Apologies for yet another report on Whitchurch. This was my first time here and an amazing explore. This place is huge, the pictures do not do it justice or explain the scale of this place. Lots of reports recently from other people and older ones. I recommend looking at those also as it’s hard...

    Report - Whitchurch Hospital, Cardiff - Jan 2019

    Hi everyone! Welcome to my first report on here. history Like most Victorian asylums, Whitchurch was built to be an entirely self-contained institute with its own water tower and generators. Built in 1908, this £350,000 Cardiff asylum spans an impressive 5 acres of land and took 10 years to...

    Information - North Wales Hospital, Denbigh

    Hi everyone I know this has nothing to do with exploring a site however I think a lot of us can agree that the plan for denbigh asylum is an outrageous and stupid one. This is why I have started a petition to somewhat halt or change the mind of those re developing Denbigh. It would mean a great...

    Report - Pool Park Hospital, Ruthin - August 2018

    Closed in 1990, the asylum has recently had its floors repaired but now out of money its left unwatched by security for worry free photographs. Used as an overflow for denbigh asylum and also a prisoner of war camp for a while the history here is quite fascinating. Truly enjoyed the look around!
