    The Visit
    This place has been done to death I think so I'll keep things brief and just show you a few pics from our visit and what the place looks like now

    The History
    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. The hospital was designed on the broad arrow plan by architect J. Vickers Edwards. The 300 acre (1.2 km²) estate on which the asylum was built was purchased by the West Riding Justices for £18,000 in 1885 and the large gothic complex of stone buildings was formally opened on 8 October 1888. The administration building, which is Grade II listed, features an Italian mosaic floor in the main corridor which is intricately decorated with the Yorkshire Rose and black daisies - the latter of which provided inspiration for the title of Black Daisies a television screenplay, filmed at High Royds, which took as its subject the experiences of sufferers of Alzheimers disease.

    Most of the estate has been tuned into new housing. The main front building and admin block are still there :)

    At the back of the estate is what I think os the cop shop too but thats just one floor of empty rooms.
    Its very worth a visit before it goes but be careful of people watching from the houses as when I was there the owners turned up and opened the front doors.
    We left that way and they seen us but was to far away to do anything or say anything, they just pointed at us.
