    Wakefield Maternity Hospital (1935 - 1992)
    Manygates Hospital (1948 - c.1981)

    This is the only block left along with the Manygates house.
    As the contract stated these have to be renovated and the firm wants to now knock them down they have been left.We can only guess what will happen to them soon as it too often the case.

    Manygates Hospital was formerly Wakefield Corporation Maternity Hospital, situated in Blenheim Road, Wakefield. It transferred to Manygates Park, Barnsley Road in 1935. The hospital closed in 1992 and transferred to Pinderfields Hospital for a short period. Maternity services in Wakefield ended in 2000.

    Records survive from 1919 - 1977, these include staff registers (1928-1855) patient registers 1919 - 1971 and administration/finance records (1919-1950). Later records for Manygates Hospital (c.1960s - 2000) were destroyed by the hospital trust.

    I just thought I would add a post script here if I can regarding maternity services in Wakefield, maternity services are now catered for at the "new" Pinderfields hospital
