    I suppose if I was a burglar and I wanted to avoid detection I could strap sausages to my fingers. Probably survive a couple of break-ins before they started to fall apart. So after spotting a way in while at the Ida ward we came back to tackle what's left of Cookridge Hospital. It first opened its doors for treatment in 1869. It specialised in the treatment of cancer patients from across large parts of the region since 1952, but in 2008 treatment was transferred to St James Hospital in Leeds. Over the years the convalescent hospital was gradually extended, and during the First World War the building was requisitioned to care for wounded servicemen, resuming its civilian role after 1919.In 1939 it was again taken over by the Government and briefly housed the Leeds Maternity Hospital. Other buildings on the site include the Ida ward which was a separate building located nearby.

    You know what this room says to me? Aqua. Which is French for water. It's like being inside an enormous Fox's Glacier Mint, which again, to me, is a bonus.

    Certainly enough room to swing a cat in here, isn't there?
