    Post New to the forum world, hope you like my report. Pool Park Asylum. Wales.


    Greetings fellow explorers. I've been urban exploring for over a year now got a few good explores under my belt, thought it was about time to start sharing them. Enjoy.

    Pool Park Asylum History: Originally owned by Sir Walter Bagot, the current buildings were rebuilt in the late 1820′s. 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. It eventually closed in 1990 and has laid derelict ever since. It appears that some building work was once planned and started but halted maybe due to the rare lesser horseshoe bats that now live in the house but for now it has been left to slowly decay in the woodland.



    Visit: Great overall nice woodland walk to the site, spent a few hours there and bumped into no one and i got to see some lesser horseshoe bats. I also walked through the front door ;)

    Welcome to the forum, and thanks for posting this. Not seen Pool Park for a while.

    If you could put a space in between photos in future reports that would be cool, makes it easier to view.
