Visited with Magpie423, MrDistopia, H1971, and LeedsExplorer

This started from a message the day before that i had not seen until about 11pm :/
Regardless, i let LE know that i'd be attending, and in turn he let Magpie know :thumb

History
The North Wales Hospital (locally known as Denbigh Mental) was a hospital for people with psychiatric illnesses located in Denbigh, North Wales..
Designed by architect*Thomas Full James*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
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.
Currently on the buildings at risk register, planning permission has currently lapsed, while Denbighshire council are planning urgent repairs and to bill the current owners/developers.

Bit gutted that Mr Pierce and his K9 friend didnt show but hey ho :D
