Visited with Circa83, one of 3 explores on a big day out,We also went to pool park, and Daresbury hall, From start to finish We were out for ten hours that day.

Sadly We missed the morgue but managed to do the nurses block.

No sign of Elwyn or his dog on our visit to Denbigh that day, but We started early so he may have still been in bed.

Some history:

The North Wales Hospital (locally known as Denbigh Mental)[1] was a hospital for people with psychiatric illnesses located in Denbigh, Denbighshire, Wales.
Designed by architect Carl Johan Aru 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.[2]
Now derelict, on October 31, 2008, Living TV's Most Haunted did a live series, The Village of the Damned on location in the North Wales Hospital which spanned over the course of a week.[3] The producers of the show were criticized by residents of Denbigh for slurs against the town and the hospital.[3]
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 is suspected.[4]
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.

This was on the wall of the nurses block, I've never seen this on a Denbigh report.
