    Clayton Hospital was founded in 1854; an amalgamation of Wakefield General Dispensary (1787) and the Wakefield House of Recovery (1826). In 1863 Mayor Clayton financed an expansion and the institution was re-named 'The Clayton Hospital and Wakefield General Dispensary'. The site moved from Dispensary Yard to the present site in 1876 and the new building was opened in 1879.By 1948 the name was changed to Clayton Hospital and it had a capacity of 200 beds. The hospital was closed in 2012 by The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust.

    The above is a basic rundown of the history of this hospital, however I found some slightly more comical bits online...

    Here is a review of the services provided here written by an unhappy member of the public in 2009...

    And it seems the secca had some fun times after ghostie hunters stormed the gates after closure.

    Anyway... a little while ago I had a little look at whats left of the hospital, as other reports have suggested it is a reet big mess after being trashed and wrecked and the exterior misleads slightly. Saying that I really enjoyed myself and it was nice to mooch about another hospital.

    Here is a postcard showing what the place looked like in 1906

    Thanks mate! I appreciate that. They are a mixture of film and digital.

    I'm still out and about, I guess I just don't post as much these days.
