    Historic Clayton Hospital, in Wakefield, is to close this year. Was built in 1854 by ex Mayor of the city, Thomas Clayton, for the city.

    http://www.newsrt.co.uk/news/historic-clayton-hospital-to-close-865037.html


    The hospital has since closed, drive past it on a regular basis.

    Plenty of access points, but security and contractors are currently busy on site clearing out the wards.

    Drive past the main entrance (wentworth street) on a daily basis and the carpark is completely closed off, as is the building entrance and most of the surrounding blocks

    I was fortunate enough to get a few internals, it's still very quiet but due to the gypos being on the roof nicking the lead the security might not be visible but they are watching.

    This is a public forum mate - if you tell us when you plan going you also tell the building owners, their security firm, the local neighborhood watch, any local chav that fancies nicking your kit, etc

    Clayton Hospital Report - an explenation is owed.

    it had to come with huge dissapointment to have to do this. it transpired that some pr1ck, whom im pretty sure who it is has reported 28days site & my previous report to the police as he was 'offended' by the morgue pictures.! this has caused no end of trouble for me & my fellow explorer. Thus the authoritys were involved who demanded that i remove the post. appologies to all who enjoyed the pictures but this had to be done i will point out NO laws were broken or any illigal activity was had. This prize tw@t user name is kyrano. he proceeded to make foul comments, which were later removed by mods, & sent even fouler pm's to members on here. Including me

    just a freindly warning, he's out to cause trouble. air with caution.

    keeping it explore all the way.:thumb

    I'm disappointed that you and your friend wanted the report deleting. In all honesty, it was your friend that persuaded me to move it to non-public, as it might jeopardize further visits he's trying to arrange. Why you don't just climb in through a window like anyone else is beyond me.

    I'm really not impressed by people that want their reports deleting just because someones got the hump.
