Pool Parc, near Ruthin, dates back to the 16th Century when it was home to the Salesbury family and the manor house was rebuilt for William Bagot, 2nd Baron Bagot, in the 1820s.

It was apparently lost in a bet by the Bagot family and it was later sold to the District Health Authority, becoming a convalescent home and then an asylum, used as an overspill for North Wales Hospital in Denbigh before closing in 1989.

Towards the end of WW2 Pool Parc was known as prisoner of war camp 38 and there were several huts in the grounds to house italian prisoners of war but was unable to find evidence of buildings on my visit

I have also uploaded a picture I found of the building in its former glory

Heads up; if you visit upper floors it is very dark take a good torch as someone has kindly removed random treads on the temporary staircase;

Nice selection of subjects covered in your photos.
You wouldn't find the PoW camp remains near the house as the huts and sewerage works were about half a mile up the road (the staff accomodation for the camp was actually in Ruthin and became council offices). Some of the hut bases are visible from the road but that's about all.

With an iPhone when you take a photo in the background it takes a video a few seconds before and after you press the photo button. So essentially a video haha but it basically called a Live Photo Cos when you hold it down it brings the photo to life

I know what Live Photo is on iPhone. Not sure if it was meant in that context
