    Visited this lovely spot with Urblex and Acid Reflux (cool to finally meet you mate):thumb Not a huge place but full of great features. Also, the first morgue I have been in on my explores so I was buzzing. Massive thanks to Acid for showing us around this site and, I would agree with him that this place has been shut a lot longer then the main hospital.

    Clayton Hospital is named after Thomas Clayton, a mayor of Wakefield and was founded in 1854. It was an amalgamation of Wakefield General Dispensary, founded in 1787, and the Wakefield House of Recovery, founded in 1826. Wakefield General Dispensary was for out-patients and the Wakefield House of Recovery was for poor in-patients suffering from infectious diseases.
    In 1852 the Wakefield Union Workhouse was completed and its hospital wards accomodated pauper invalids and fever cases, so that the House of Recovery was closed in 1854. In 1863 Mayor Clayton financed an expansion and the institution was re-named 'The Clayton Hospital and Wakefield General Dispensary'. The site moved from Dispensary Yard to the present site in 1876 and the new building was opened in 1879.By 1948 the name was changed to Clayton Hospital and it had a capacity of 200 beds.

    Thank You Mate, glad you enjoyed them. Thanks again for making it happen bud :thumb
    Yeah, you where right on your exit time, quite a big lad to come lumbering out of the darkness. The tattoos on his neck did not help either.
    Hospital report will be up soon all being well. Your head lamp helped a lot.
    I'm sure Urblex will come up trumps mate ;)

    Not as sinister as that Bloke though, if someone shone 800 Lumens in my face my pupils would not have been that size or been able to carry on walking :eek:

    No worries mate :)
