    Default Denbigh April 2012..My last time....


    I think most people know the history of Denbigh Hospital so i shall spare the detail other people have covered it so well..She literally is being bought to her knees so quickly now..so i thought i better get there to see some of the areas i really wanted too before her end,..the change over the last few years is dramatic yet the is still an awful lot to keep you busy for a good few hours...the areas i wanted to see on this trip where the morgue the chaple and the rooms that powered such a vast hospital..i got to see them all....Mr beardy didnt rear his head..however the security was on mass as a screetching car and three guards all on their walkies made our exit far more hurried than we expected...and after we dissapeared into the woods one of them jumped out infront of us and radioed through " I got um Del..I got um!" After we explained we wer on a public footpath and having a nice ramble he ran off talking to Del again...All in all a great splore...plenty to see but also quite sad to think that this time next year she will probably no longer be there....

















    nice bit of ghost writing there for Nelly..

    Denbigh Asylum comes under one of those, a thousand places to see for you die. It looks pretty darn fooked now unsurprisingly.
    Thanks for the update.

    im usually quite layed back and dont spook very often and wed had such a great few hours mooching about there really enjoying the place, aware that the hourly cirtuit in the car was taking place but none the less still relaxed..so we decided to head down to the large white building on the road side when one of them must of spotted us and all of a sudden it was like a scene of Mans most wanted! lots of all in black secu flying in all directions sceetching about in cars hurtling towards us! we sort of managed to fall out the boundry onto a foot path..lucky! and with that rambled on our way..in fact we followed the one seccu man all through the woods as he frantically radioed his mate Del!! so yes very weird set up going on there now..plenty of beefy bits of big boys watching over her..it was quite interesting at one point when i asked who are you looking for and got this reply in a very broad welsh accent.." They in there destroying the place..****in vandals they are"... I replied.." i think the demolishers are doing that themselves..."

    Looks like an awesome place. Nice one.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
