Following on from Denbigh Asylum, we popped into Pool Parc Asylum as it was just round the corner - sadly a flying visit and like a muppet I left my tripod in the car.
This particular facility was in fact an overspill for Denbigh Asylum for around 80 "guests". Built in the 1820s as a private manor house, the hospital took over the building in 1937 and closed its doors in 1990.
A very darkened building welcomes you, with stairs to die for, pretty much all windows are boarded up so, you need a tripod and a good torch for a bit of light painting.
Proper spooky, Scooby Doo style, it was at this point Urban Spaceman brought to my attention some trapped birds in flight in the building, they weren't, the place was full of bats !!
Bats, lack of tripods, floors starting to squish, we left.
3/10 and full of bats (may have been a 6 with a tripod, a 7 or 8 without the bats).
