Denbigh asylum is a place that we've explored more times than we can remember over the years, with each visit still managing to see something we missed the previous visit, over the years this place has been home to a local legend 'Elwyn' the self proclaimed security guard who wasn't afraid of a confrontation or even setting his German Shepard on anyone that decided to trespass onto the grounds, We actually saw him on a bench when we arrived and parked near him he knew what we where there for but he couldn't do anything to stop us due to the fact he previously set his dog onto a new potential business investor who was on site with the councils permission he has now been banned from entering and had his keys to the site taken off him which is probably for the better.

Brief History

The asylum was constructed between 1844 and 1848 and served as a refuge for Welsh-speaking mental patients. Originally designed to accommodate about 200 patients, it was expanded to alleviate overcrowding in 1899 and eventually was home to as many as 1,500 patients.
Due to the hospital being privately owned there was little to no incentive for patients to be released so many stayed there till there deaths be it natural or a result of the dark history this place holds including lobotomies and electric shock therapy.
The hospital eventually closed in 1995 and after the previous owner of 14years had allow the buildings to gradually crumble away all it took was after a few denied planning permissions a few suspiciously times arsen attacks and In 2018 plans went through to turn the building into 300 new homes.
