“High Royds Hospital is a former psychiatric hospital south of the village of Menston, West Yorkshire, England.
The hospital is located within in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough and was first opened on 8 October 1888 as the West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum. In 1988, Jimmy Savile assaulted a patient at the hospital’s 100 anniversary celebrations.
The hospital closed in 2003 and the site has since been developed for residential use, some of which is in the old hospital buildings.”
The explore was a rather random decision and wasn’t planned in the slightest, the ones which are always the best!! We managed to get into two buildings which were on this site, with one been to what I believe was a school type building judging by what was left and then the other been the Admin Block to the former Asylum. These are the only two parts which are left on this site due to the rest of the Hospital been demolished/converted into luxury houses and apartments. The Admin building is very impressive and still consists of some really grand rooms, a ballroom, endless corridors and a clock tower with an impressive view of the estate.
