    Visited a few sites today including High Royd's and Cookridge Hospital.

    High Royd's
    The entire site seems to have now been renovated. There is one tiny building left which is in the process of renovation- access seems very poor.

    Cookridge
    Proceed with extreme caution! Entry very difficult to gain with workers on site- the place is full of CCTV, and work has already started on this site. New houses surround the area too.
    Not much left and what is left is in the process of been renovated.

    Both could do with being updated on the map for 'converted' to avoid unnecessary trips. I have tried but cannot find update map or even an add to map button. :)

    If you mean the one with the clock tower on then It's been converted into either offices or flats couldn't tell what only drove around the site.
    There is one tiny almost shed-sized building left in that's not got people living/working in however it is a building site. and not worth the effort as its at the side of peoples houses like within 5m
    I wish I had taken some photos, it's quite nice how they converted it all :)

    All the buildings in this post are lived in : http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/high-royds-asylum-menston-june-2016.t103901

    Are you sure Admin has been converted? It always looked in good nick from the outside and I've heard of people going in recently!

    Judging from all the pictures we've seen on here.. There was new windows in place and everything had changed... Has anyone got a picture of the specific admin building?

    Admin is the building with the clock tower. The windows were always intact and it always looked as if it wasn't derelict until you got up close and actually looked inside.

    As with the mythical beasts picture on the above link... The bottom Windows have been completely replaced as well as the top and the whole building has now been sand blasted.... Didn't want to get too close as there was a lot of traffic around the area...

    Did you look inside though? The windows weren't boarded when I went (though this would be before the boarding) and it always looked mint!

    No chance the admin has been converted that quick, no sign of any work 2 months ago. there's been lots of new Windows stored near the kitchen for at least a year now maybe they have installed those

    This is what happens when you drive round and don't take a proper look, incorrect information gets out to people!

    There was a report from here a couple of months back, a building of that size, there is no way it has been converted.

    I went 2 months back, the access I used was breeze blocked up a few days later. But that basement access had been open like that for months. A friend had been a few weeks earlier and there were workmen in there doing stuff in the rooms where the new white boards had been put in.
