    High Royds
    Hi guys
    so this is one that is close to home for me and one that to be honest for a while I believed to have been completely knocked down till it resurfaced on OS.
    Visited a few times with Raztafarian.
    History
    The hospital is located within in Leeds and was first opened on 8 October 1888 as the West riding pauper lunatic asylum. The hospital closed in 2003 and the site has since been developed for residential use, some of which is in the old hospital buildings.
    Also my grandad used to deliver meat to high royds and has told me some really intereting storys of how they would pull out patients teeth to stop them trying to bite people pretty grim if you ask me.
    Only a short one but anyway enjoy...
