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 site of The North Wales Hospital, Denbigh. Its official designation was as a psychiatric convalescent home, and it eventually closed in 1990.

Visited on a beautiful sunny afternoon in April 2011.
