Artist's Description

The beautifully atmospheric Pool Park in Ruthin, North Wales, an abandoned mental asylum.

Pool Park House was once owned by Sir Walter Bagot, a prominent Staffordshire barrister, and was rebuilt in its current incarnation between 1826-1829 as a residence for the second Lord Bagot. After eventually being sold to the Tate family (of Tate & Lyle), it was acquired by the North Wales Counties Mental Hospital and opened in 1937 to accommodate 87 patients for relief of overcrowding at the much larger Denbigh Asylum. Its official designation was as a psychiatric convalescent home, and eventually closed in 1990.
