After getting up at an ungodly hour and making my way to Ellesmere Port, I settled down to wait for Shadow_Play and friends. I didn't know what type of car I was looking for, let alone make or model!

Lo and behold I was pleasantly surprised when the car pulled up and there where two women sitting in the front. Err WTF? Then Shadow_Play made himself known. Then it was off to Pool Parc! (with a quick pit stop at maccies on the way ;))

Some history from Only2Eyes.com

Pool Park House was once owned by Sir Walter Bagot, a prominent Staffordshire barrister, and was rebuilt in in its current incarnation between 1826-1829 as a residence for the second Lord Bagot.

After eventually being sold to the Tate family (of Tate & Lyle), it was acquired by the North Wales Counties Mental Hospital and opened in 1937 to accommodate 87 patients for relief of overcrowding at the much larger and much more visited Denbigh Hospital.

Its official designation was as a psychiatric convalescent home, and eventually closed in 1990. Planning documents were submitted some years ago for conversion into a 60-apartment residential home, but were rejected.
As you can probably tell, the place has been left to rot. On with the pics...
