    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. 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
    After arriving on site at lunch time ish there were some guys cutting the grass so we decided to go and have a look around spotting numerous other buildings not yet renovated. Went back to the front to see the grass still being cut. After a lovely subway we were deciding not to go back and try somewhere else but we were glad we returned! Loved this place! After trying to get in for just under a year.. It was defiantly worth the wait!
    Enjoy!!
