The estate of Pool Park (spelled Parc in Welsh) began as a deer park for the nearby Ruthin Castle. Following its time as a hunting ground, the property was passed between a series of wealthy landowners. The elegant mock-Tudor style manor house that still stands today was constructed in 1862 for the second Lord Bagot.

In 1937, the house was sold to the North Wales Counties Mental Hospital, which was in need of a second location to house overflow patients from the nearby Denbigh Insane Asylum . Pool Park held 87 patients at capacity, but in times of need had as many as 120. For a brief stint of time during World War II, the grounds also held a prisoner of war camp.

My Visit, I was out Driving around Wales with friends and having got completely lost on some back roads we bumped into an old fellow who looked like a bit of a hippie and stopped and asked him if he new anywhere cool in the area that we could have a wander round, in a bit of a crazy welsh accent he pointed us in the direction of this place, not knowing what we were gonna stumble upon we were quite surprised when this appeared round the corner,
