Arrow The Writings On The Wall - Denbigh - May 2011 - - 04-05-2011, 10:45

a forgotten place sometimes on peoples explores here, probably the floor in admin is enough to put most people off , the gaping hole in the floor is the only way across and up into the tower, but then your faced with a collapse on the second floor which you have to literally hug the wall to get to the next your mind your thinking now thats 3 floors id fall if it collapsed, the 2 ive just come up and the hole in admin,but whats at the top drives you on, and to be honest if it wernt for bigjobs going first and talking people up ,where to stand and what to look out for etc id probably have never got to the top,and this place has been on my to do list now for ages and i wasnt going to give in that easy, its just a pity you couldnt have a 360 view up top but it was good enough and to see the asylum up high is quite a sight,but the graff at the top made up for it,dating back mant moons ago.

visited the asylum with Sparkuk,Bigjobs,Catbalou,Mookster,Xan Asmodi,Flubbera87,Everyonefreezes and his girlfriend.

anyhow this is what i came to see, and i cant remember who came up the tower in the end, but a top day all round cheers

the gate near the top of the main chamber,this is where the staircase goes from concrete to rotten wood (i think theres about 2 or 3 more flights from here)

a little peek out of one of the side windows on the way up

mookster and kevsy21

heres some old graff up at the top

not sire whats going on here looks like a snake giving it to a lamb or something lol

out up top

the last little stretch if you really wanted to say youd been to the very very top of sure its doable in some way

My friends who live in Denbigh tell me tales of going up there at night whilst drunk. Clinging to walls to avoid the holes and the parts of walls that they're holding onto falling off in their hands!

Nice to see a different report of this place. Details like this are omitted from most reports of sites. Nice to see it

Smoke dope. Worship Satan.

Excellent. The rooftops, entrance and the graff in the tower are the only good things about this place now.
