Visited with two non members on a weekend trip to Llanberis.
As beautiful as the exterior of this building is, the inside is pretty buggered and I was slightly disappointed. Got to meet the legend that is Elwyn though and he actually wasn't as bad as I'd been lead to believe.. I even took a sneaky selfie as he was getting into his car haha

The North Wales Hospital (locally known as Denbigh Mental or Denbigh Asylum) 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.
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. Arson was suspected.

Currently on the buildings at risk register, planning permission has currently lapsed. In 2011 the building was at risk of collapsing and no action was taken by the owners after an urgent works notice was issued, Denbighshire Council had no choice but to carry out repairs on the building which has reached £930,000. In 2013, Denbighshire Council voted to press ahead with a compulsory purchase order on the building; the council, however, wish to reach an agreement with the owners before taking legal action. An estimated cost of repairing the building is £1 million.

I like the look of this place, especially the corridor shot. Pretty buggered true, but still a fair bit of worthwhile exploring I'd imagine!

Tastefully edited set IMO, just my kind of style! She is still a good'un this one, even if she is getting on a bit. Kinda jealous you got to meet Beardie, I've never had the pleasure :p:

A Great site. Still worthy to capture these places until they are lost forever. Nice to see it with no fence in the foreground. Nice pictures too.
