Castle Of Broken Dreams

Gwrych Castle Abergele North Wales UK--2

Many a fortune has been lost by a romantic dreamer with visions of restoring the fairytale Gwrych Castle at Abergele. The scale & cost of any restoration project usually leads to the project being eventually abandoned and the castle decaying a little more. It’s to be hoped that the latest proposals, to convert it into a luxury hotel, prove to be successful but there seems to be little movement with the project at the moment..

Abandoned Mental Hospital

Facade of the former North Wales Mental Hospital at Denbigh. The hospital (known locally as ‘Denbigh Mental’) closed in sections from 1991 to 2002, and has been extensively vandalised in the years since. Proposals to convert the buildings for residential use have come to nothing and Denbighshire County Council are currently considering acquiring the site.former North Wales Mental Hospital at Denbigh.
