    We went here on a Sunday dinner time with no real access details and after working round with no way in we bumped in to some nice lad with a big ginger beard (good lad if you come across him) and he shown us the way in.
    Once in we had a walk round and half way round we noticed the main front doors had been opened up.
    I had a look out but no one was to be seen.
    We carried on our explore and then after leaving through the front door and got a photo form the front, I found I had lost my mini Tripod in side. (Velbon ex-macro, if you find it its yours)

    We then went for a quick look round but couldn't find it. As we left there were people now outside pointing towards the building. We left quickly to our car in the housing estate behind the Asylum where we did see a police van doing the rounds but they didn't spot us.

    Oh we also visit one of the out houses first that may have been the police station.

    History -
    High Royds Hospital is a former psychiatric hospital south of the village of Menston, West Yorkshire, England. The hospital is located within in the City of Leeds metropolitan borough and was first opened on 8 October 1888 as the West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum. The hospital was designed on the broad arrow plan by architect J. Vickers Edwards. The 300 acre (1.2 km²) estate on which the asylum was built was purchased by the West Riding Justices for £18,000 in 1885 and the large gothic complex of stone buildings was formally opened on 8 October 1888. The administration building, which is Grade II listed, features an Italian mosaic floor in the main corridor which is intricately decorated with the Yorkshire Rose and black daisies - the latter of which provided inspiration for the title of Black Daisies a television screenplay, filmed at High Royds, which took as its subject the experiences of sufferers of Alzheimers disease.

    It's not the morgue that you found, that went many years ago.

    It was the morgue an old woman told us where to find it, you can tell it was the morgue all the window are bricked up and there's a cremation bit and you can see where the autopsy table was and the drains, you can even see the rooms where they stored the bodies which had a sign on the door saying death between such amount of years, it was still a good thing to look around but it's pointless in going as there is like 10% to see as 90% has been converted.
