Denbigh Asylum, Wales April 2019.
Abandoned recently in 1995 and Constructed between 1844-1848, the hospital served as a refuge for Welsh-speaking mental patients. Originally designed to accommodate about 200 patients, it was expanded to alleviate overcrowding in 1899 and eventually was home to as many as 1500 patients.
The hospital has been vandalized and looted since its closing, and plans had been made to demolish the historic building to make way for 280 new homes and businesses, but these were never completed. In 2008 the buildings were featured in an episode of “Most Haunted” and later the same year a devastating fire broke out, causing more damage to the aging structure. Today, its fate is uncertain.
Unfortunately we were unable to get many good pictures of this magnificent place due to security being on site, however the man was lovely and told us loads of history on the place and agreed it’s a shame that the place got looted so badly. 📸 Nikon D3400.
