    The History
    Clayton Hospital was opened in 1854; after Thomas Clayton, a former city mayor donated buildings to the Wakefield general dispensary, an organisation set up to provide healthcare for the poor. It provided much needed healthcare long before the NHS was formed.
    The hospital was later abandoned in 2012. Specialist eye services have moved from Clayton to the more modern Pinderfields Hospital and its sexual health services will be based at King Street Walk-in Centre.

    The Explore

    Explored with @plod and @Submarine (shot out to the 3 kids we also met there :thumb)
    It's a shame to see that the place is in such a state, I tried to make the best of it despite not having much battery power left in my camera from the previous explores of the day.
    The main building was pretty disorientating so I'm sure I missed some of it but I'm quite satisfied with what I did get to see, given how trashed the place is anyway. We were interested in finding the morgue and we managed to locate it but it was very well boarded up, and there is anti-climb paint covering the fences that surround it as @Submarine managed to find :D
    As we were searching for a way in to another building in the center of the site, the security guard showed up while @plod was down the tunnels looking for a way in from there. He gave us 2 minutes to get him out before the police are called but plod had wandered so far in that he couldn't hear us calling him :p Luckily he showed up in time after no luck finding anything; the security guard wasn't happy but he gave us no trouble as he didn't really seem to know what he was doing :confused:

    @crusader There were loads of pipes and a couple of rooms with electric control panels. There are some stairs leading up to the main hospital but apart from that there wasn't much down there

    I"ve also had surgery here a few times, but i still managed to wander down and have a look at access :thumb

    As you"ve been on 28 since 2014 o_O you should know we don"t ask for access on an open Public forum for obvious reasons, even though it"s Wakefields answer too Cameltoe!

    If it matters, you'll do it. I did a day of exploring round Leeds entirely on foot and had 8 failures and only one success in 9 hours. It was easy for me to get into the hospital but things can change quickly so you won't know how easy it is until you try it, not that it's something that should be discussed online, especially regarding a building which has off-site security.
