Denbigh Asylum, North Wales
Other Names include: North Wales Lunatic Asylum, Ysbyty Gogledd Cymru Dinbych

The Asylum was built in 1844 and closed down in 1995; housing 1,500 patients and 1,000 staff.

Since its closure this building has been left to ruin, windows smashed, the room striped of any lead and the walls stripped of any cables. Much of the inside are full of graffiti and rubbish, some areas have also been set on fire. There is also a large amount of decay where the roof has collapsed and caused water damage, rotting floorboards and walls etc.

The site has had some renovation work done but apparently stopped due to lack of money, although their are report work will start again in the next 12+ months to convert into flats.

Most Haunted filmed one of their shows here in the nurses quarters, where you can find the two rooms containing Pentagrams (see pictures below)

The premises are very easy to access with no security as such, although there is local man and his dog that occasionally patrol the site (apparently he shouldn't be there and has no power to remove you... but he might set his dog on you)

Wow you've done a really good job here especially for a first report. I never noticed the pentagram on the floor in that room when I was there at new year, nor were there candles.....! Excellent shots :thumb

Thanks really appreciate your feedback.
Maybe somebody has been dabbling in a little Satanism, both rooms were almost identical with candles and the Pentagrams on the floors... Although I did find the Penis drawings on the wall amusing :)

Wasn"t it part of the Most Haunted "CRAP" when they spent the week here, creating pretend "SHIT" for those "BELIEVERS" :crazy

Thanks for the comments guys.
Yeah I believe it was done by Most Haunted but I haven't looked it up on you tube and don't think I'll bother :)
It's quite amusing to be honest, you do get to see the hall before it burnt down two weeks after along with the fantastically shit fake padded cells made from loft insulation and a mortuary slab made out of plywood.

Will only bite a little bit... well a lot
