    Clayton Mortuary.

    Visited with Host.

    Have had eyes on this hospital since it closed some years ago and wandered around it on many occasions although it was always tight with a security office still inside, even went as far as asking the security chap for a visit once, which of course was denied.

    Anyway, a report popped up during the early part of this year confirming the hospital's interior was most definitely bland thanks to the NHS' insistence for suspended ceilings and pink paint, however, a swift trip back to Wakey to see this little building was definitely worthwhile. Had a brief look in the hospital but it wasn't worth photographing.

    The mortuary is small, yet well formed and well decayed, built some time in the late 1950's I'd guess, with the typical sub-stationesque utilitarian civic box design seen regularly. Like many Victorian hospitals, bits and pieces have been added to Clayton over time until the overall form has become a mass of clag on additions from different eras, very messy. Not sure what the future holds for this site, it lies in the "posh" St. John's area of Wakefield amongst the well to do Georgian terraces and could provide a site for luxury housing or something. As far as I can tell, none of the buildings are listed, possibly due to the amount of shite that has been stuck onto them over the years.

    Nuff waffle. Pictures:
