The History (Wikipedia)

The North Wales Hospital (locally known as Denbigh Mental or Denbigh Asylum) is a Grade II listed building. Designed by architect Thomas Fulljames, building started in 1844 and completed in 1848. Once a hospital for up to 200 people with psychiatric illnesses, by the early 1900's it housed around 1,500 patients and staff. It is located in Denbigh, Denbighshire, Wales.
Designed by architect Thomas Fulljames to originally accommodate between 60 and 200 patients, the hospital originally had its own farm and gasworks. Planned for closure by Enoch Powell during the 1960's, it was closed in sections from 1991 to 1995.

The Explore

While there are already lots of reports on Denbigh Asylum on here it is still an amazing place and neither me, nor my mate had been before.
We arrived before 10am with blue skies and frost on the ground. The grounds of the place are eerily silent as it's in the middle of nowhere with very few roads around it and hardly any traffic passing by. We managed to explore the whole place (as far as we know) without seeing a single person until we were walking out and we came across a dog walker. The place is in a bad state and some parts are definitely no-go areas due to parts of buildings having collapsed or looking like they're about to.

Anyway, on to the pictures....

Stopped by here again last month myself - interesting to see the chapel completely sealed shut with steel but the rest of the place more wide open than it ever was.

In answer to your question, the big white rendered building was the nurses' home.

Nicely covered :thumb

Thanks a lot, Idle Hands. I thought as much. All it seemed to be was a load of bedrooms with fancy wood floors throughout.
