Talgarth has had arguably worse nutcase security than Denbigh for a long time ha. It's also in a much, much worse state structurally thanks to a previous owner removing every single slate from every single roof and selling them for a huge profit!



Beardy Elwyn is long gone from Denbigh, after his dog bit a potential developer on a visit to the site he was basically told to never come back. When the council completed the CPO Denbigh got a proper fence around it for the first time and a very visible official security guard presence complete with cameras and all that gubbins dotted around.
Man, the drama of urbex often surprises me. Beardy Elwyn is easily the best possible name I could envision this man having. Reckon he and Derek would either get on like a house on fire or inevitably kill one another. Just don't understand how boring some people's lives must be that they spend all their time threatening or in Elwyn's case actually harming trespassers of a site they have no legal responsibility for

To be fair there is a lot of ill feeling at Talgarth over the business park and general scams that happened when it was sold off. The guy who owned the isolation hospital at the top of the site for example though he owned the building/land. When the adminsitrators come in they found no proof it had been sold off by the business park. Derek is the guy who's farmland surrounds the site so while he's a bit bat shit crazy he is generally protecting his livestock. Oddly though he was never like this until the business park collapsed either.

That's actually very helpful, certainly explains a few things. I wonder why the business park tipped him over the edge into Terminator territory...

Quite possible he lost out as well or maybe fact while it’s like it is he has grazing rights around it. Elwyn at Denibigh enjoyed these too so it was in his interest for it to remain forlorn

Just got back from here, no sign of any mad old people! Barbed wire seems well pulled down in places around the site, plus boarding of buildings is all but given up on.

We played hide and seek with him for over 4hrs lol apparently he has been told by police to keep away as he has no authority and by trying to chase explorers out he is also trespassing :D
