    Default Lluesty Hospital, Holywell, North Wales – May 2017


    Lluesty Hospital, Holywell, North Wales – May 2017

    So in true recent Landie style; I have a huge backlog of sites to get up! So far 2017 has been a very slow year on the exploring front, but Mookster and I had a rather successful road trip back in May of North Wales.

    The first site we did was the rather derpy Lluesty Hospital which would be Mooksters 500th explore! I haven’t been counting personally, but estimate it to be around 300 and something.

    Anyway, though this place is rather ruined, it does have some photogenic bits and bobs remaining.

    The hospital is located in Holywell, Wales, and was originally built as a workhouse in the later part of the 1830s.

    It has been disused since the new Holywell Community Hospital opened in 2008, a mile or so down the road.

    According to auctioneer, there was “intense interest” in the site, potentially selling well in excess of its £150,000 guide price at £275,000.

    The original workhouse complex; inclusive of its chapel was Grade II listed 20 years ago.

    The early Victorian building was designed by St Asaph architect John Welch and used as a workhouse for 14 parishes.

    The hospitals construction was carried by Thomas Hughes of Liverpool and the contractor was Samuel Parry. Several alterations were believed to be carried out in 1869 and the hospital was enlarged to the right in 1902.

    The buildings are on grounds of around 7.4 acres which have been allocated for housing development. It is thought up to 70 houses could be built on the site.
