    I know what you're thinking, "not another one from this place" but here it is!

    Kirklees College started life as Huddersfield Infirmary in 1831 up until 1967 when the Ramsden Technical College moved in, they paid £105,000 for the site.

    In September 1968 the first students began lectures and the first new building on the site opened in 1969. The main new block was built in 1971 - the year the college became Huddersfield Technical College. In 2008 Huddersfield Technical College merged with Dewsbury College to form Kirklees College and relocated in 2013.

    The campus incorporates 10 buildings over a 6.1 Acre site ranging from the old hospital complex to modern blocks of classrooms.

    Some of the buildings have been used for the filming of the dramas Black Work, Remember Me where they changed some areas to be a care home, a hospital and a police station and the film Extremis. Some of this still remains as you will see.

    The site is owned by Wiggett Construction Group, who have now confirmed they want to demolish the 1970s college buildings to make way for a Lidl supermarket.


    The place is way beyond trashed with every inch torn up for scrap, thieves have caused several fires by burning the plastic covering off the copper wire. Still some nice stuff left so it was an enjoyable way to kill a few hours, visited with Birdman Whistle.



    The old infirmary building:
