Well, what a day this was! We had a good few hours inside until a fairly extreme encounter with beardy and his dog brought an end to the day at Denbigh. There is video footage of the incident from at least two people and it is all being forwarded to the police, there is already a case building against him and this should put some sort of nail in his coffin.

The place looks in poor condition from the photos posted but you can't appreciate just how bad it is until you get there. Hands down the most dangerous place I've ever been, and if you want access into the tower you've got to be prepared to take some silly risks!

It was an awesome day though, thanks to everyone who made it what it was. I won't list the names because I know I'll forget somebody and that'll be embarrassing but there were 10 of us in total.









































Cheers for looking, more pics here http://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/sets/72157626620130110/

it was an extreme encounter...EVERYONE planning on going to Denbigh take heed of this. He WILL come in the building with the dog and he WILL come find you on the public road if you get away.

If he does find you and starts funny business, record everything and report it to North Wales police.

(Not my vids)

Click the pic on first one...

Both videos are now with the police, whilst it could act as a double edged sword they are here as a 'warning' video for people who may not know exactly what he is like who plan on visiting Denbigh.

He's obviously a mentalist, but he's part of the character of the place. I do deplore hot headed security though, even when you're a calm, polite, non-threatening presence.

Does he ever let the dog off the lead?

This is such a beatuiful site, the architecture looks incredible. Shame about the mental farmer and his mad dog. Has anyone managed to get a responce from the North Wales Police regarding this psychopath?

He doesn't have one, he is an unlicensed thug, a power freak and a coward.

The police are finally taking an interest in his actions now we have video evidence. The police have been informed before when he's thrown his weight around but never gone very far with the matter.

You were on a public road and being threatened, harrased and made to fear for your safety. Keep on at the police and make it very clear you want to press charges.

It seems this time we've got stuff that'll stick, my friend who filmed the Youtube clip has been in pretty much constant dialogue with Hampshire Police (his local) and Denbigh Police so the wheels are turning.

Also did you hear Beardy say 'go to Severalls' in the video?:lol:

I agree that the situation with El Beard is unacceptable. Last year we were sitting on the road outside in the car having some sandwiches and he came up, demanding we wound the window down and he then started making all sorts of accusations, including a classic about we'd 'caused all that damage to admin'.

We went to the police and reported the incident.

I commented on one of the videos on youtube, I have too been threatened by this thug, the police weren't too interested when we reported him. We are in the middle of battling to have something done about this guy, hopefully now with video evidence something will be done. Makes me want to go back there even more and get evidence myself!

I've just watched the video. As has already been said, you were walking along a public road when the man - using his dog, clearly to intimidate and threaten - stopped, accosted and insulted you, for no reason at all. Not sure the police will be doing anything, good luck!

The fact that the police have received numerous complaints over a long period of time, and yet haven't done anything about it, would be quite an interesting story for the papers. If the police are investigating it now, then leave them to it, but if nothing comes of it (and you have a right to enquire and be informed of what's happening if you've made a formal complaint), then I'd go to a decent national reporter to ask the questions why nothing's been done.
Red faces all round if it comes out that the police have ignored repeated complaints by a lot of people over a long time. I'm guessing that there may then be a formal investigation of them as well as the 'beardy' problem. :mrgreen:

Not really, with no physical proof there is nothing they can do, cases require physical evidence for prosecution, in this particular situation you also need to be on public land when it happens for the case to stand.

I know people who have freely approached the guy and have had no issues with him. I know what he does is illegal but he is the only person who is protecting denbigh really. If you look into the guys past you will see he worked as the caretaker at Denbigh for decades and did have keys for the building untill a few years back when it became a ruin. It must be disheartening for your former pride and glory to be turned into a shit whole be chavs and pikeys, unfortunatly over time he can't trust anyone and has became very attatched to the place.

Next time your there, ask him to show you around and see what response you get...
