    Default Denibigh Asylum Staff Block : March 2012


    Am soo behind with getting my images together so without further ado am in the process of putting them up...

    After failing miserably at an unearthly hour at St Jo's Seminary I thought I'd show my mate the relatively easy Pool Parc and set off for Wales then on way home decided to take a quick look at Denbigh asylum staff block an oft overlooked building as most go straight to the main building , whiich is awesome but lately quite busy, for another time very soon methinks.

    Getting into the staff block wasn't as easy as last summer but is still pretty much straightforward not seeing the current state of the main building but remembering it being pretty scrappy in places, the staff block is in contrast in not too bad nick, floors 1 and 2 are virtually identical and consists mainly of staff bedrooms? with toilet facilities every so often

    Floor 1 contains 2 "Devil rooms" which I only found out after returning from my first visit last summer, was arranged by the vandals that are "Britain's Most Haunted" which I watched my one only edition as it was based at denbigh when I initially opened the door and saw the chalked pentagram floor , black pentagram wall and black magic symbolism I was a bit unnerved at the time, now don't get me wrong all this ghost hunting business is def NOT my thing and I don't get spooked at all on splores but this building has a certain air to it and kept telliing my mate not to wander off to far haha.





    Top 2 floors featuring long corridors with many bedrooms



    Usually consisting of just a wardrobe and a sink





    and a choice of 4 exotic wallpapers



    most of the top floors are stripped of any artifacts save for the usual broken glass and the odd torn off door laying on the wooden floors , there are a few paper targets dotted about here and there perhaps airsoft wars have raged in here?



    Bedrooms are interrupted everynow and again with toilets and bathrooms



    The stairwell down to floor 1 where upon that bizzare blonde lady from "Britain's most haunted" could hear a "whistling" ghost , total bollox of course the way this bulding is and the amount of smashed windows the wind is very prevalent and whistles here there and everywhere throughout the whole visit.



    someone's now defunct wake up call reminder



    ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!! one of the devil rooms situtuated at either end of floor 1 where crazy lady wanted to raise hell literally and direct dark forces to a non believer in the "mirror" room



    The ground floor is a refreshing change from non stop bedrooms and bogs, the smell of fire has died down considerably from last year, not sure when a fire was here but the nurses' cresh area is pretty bad now.

    I think this is my fave room in the place the bright red powder floor and a couple of ancient suckers





    The rooms are quite large down here



    one more bath . I like how there is a scrawled hand print on the wall, it's almost a set piece.



    I noticed last time I was here, there was evidence of vagabondry but he or she seems long gone save for maybe their last supper...



    On the way out a helicopter appeared and started hovering above us , we made a show of taking photographs of the exterior and made our way off site, not sure about copter but it felt like it was escorting us off as it only flew off as we left the site haha.

    Cheers for looking



    More from this visit and stuff here...http://www.flickr.com/photos/6803733...7629448682778/

    I like that, a bit borderline on the processing though, but it stayed just on the acceptable side of "Eye Burn" for me :)
