Some background about this well trodden place, lifted from the usual sources ;

The North Wales Hospital (locally known as Denbigh Mental or Denbigh Asylum)[1] is a Grade II listed building. Designed by architect Thomas Full James, building started in 1844 and completed in 1848. Once a hospital for people with psychiatric illnesses, at its maximum capacity it could house 200 patients. It is located in Denbigh, Denbighshire, Wales.

This set of stunning buildings spread over a large site is well trodden on here and other urbex sites, but I hope you like the photos of the current state of the place. The site is so vast, we only explored a small proportion of it. One of the easiest explores we've done. Much of the site now is completely trashed.

After a leisurely stroll across some fields full of sheep, well it is Wales, we had a quick look around the church ;

This place consumed so much coal keeping the place warm, it must have kept half the mines in north wales open. this is the weigh bridge scales

Steel windowed framed conservatory - an obvious later additional to a classic victorian stone building

An echo back to early times when the milkman would have delivered
