A bit of history.
Pool Park House in Ruthin, Wales, was once owned by Sir Walter Bagot, a prominent Staffordshire barrister, and was rebuilt 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 Denbigh Asylum. Its official designation was as a psychiatric convalescent home, and eventually closed in 1990.

The place has been very much stripped. Even some of the panels from the ornate staircase have been removed. Can't believe how much wood had been used in the design of the ground floor. I guess that explains the bottle Cuprinol we discovered in the basement.
Visited with GhOst and had a lovely uninterrupted explore which is always nice.

Anyway, on with the photos.
