    MISSION OBJECTIVE:
    GENERAL EXPLORATION / COLLABORATION

    TARGET:
    HUDDERSFIELD COLLEGE

    TARGET DETAILS:
    THE HOSPITAL WAS FOUNDED IN 1831 & BY 1929 SPECIAL FEATURE AVAILABLE INCLUDED TURKISH, RUSSIAN & MEDICATED BATHS & ELECTRO-MEDICAL DEPARTMENT. THE INFIRMARY WAS ALSO APPROVED FOR THE TREATMENT OF VENERAL DISEASES
    THE NEW ROAD CAMPUS HAS BEEN HOME TO ITS VARIOUS NAMED COLLEGE INCARNATIONS SINCE THE 1967 WHEN THE COLLEGE PAID £105,000 FOR THE SITE. NEW BUILDINGS WERE OPENED IN 1967 WITH THE MAIN BLOCK BEING OPENED IN 1971. BY 1978 THEY WERE 8,000 STUDENTS ATTENDING THE COLLEGE.
    THE SITE WHICH NOW CONSISTS OF 10 LINKED BUILDINGS TOTALING 342,000 SQ/FT OVER A 6.1 ACRE SITE, WHICH INCLUDES THE ORIGINAL GRADE 2 LISTED HOSPITAL BUILDINGS, WITH ITS IMPRESSIVE ORIGINAL SANDSTONE COLUMNS IDENTICAL TO THOSE ON THE NEARBY HUDDERSFIELD RAILWAY STATION. WITH THE STATUE OF EDWARD THE VII NOW LOOKING OVER THE CAR PARK.
    THE COLLEGE HAS RECENTLY MOVED INTO A NEW PURPOSE BUILD WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENT FOR £70M WHICH WILL WELCOME 20K STUDENTS.
    THE OLD SITE HAS BEEN PURCHASED BY OLDHAM BASED WIGGETT CONSTRUCTION COMPANY FOR AN UNDISCLOSED SUM SUGGESTIONS FOR THE SITE INCLUDE A SUPERMARKET, A CARE OR MEDICAL CENTRE, WITH THE FINAL POTION UN-ALLOCATED. THE LOCAL LIDL HAS CONFIRMED IT WILL MOVE TO THE NEW LOCATION FROM ITS LOCAL CASTLEGATE SITE.
    THE FORMER HOSPITAL BUILDING HAS BEING USED FOR PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER EXTREMIS, STARRING DAVID O’HARA (BRAVEHEART, THE DEPARTED, LUTHER), ISABELLE ALLEN (LES MISERABLES), NEIL PEARSON (DROP THE DEAD DONKEY); AND 1980S SINGER TOYAH WILCOX.

    OBJECTIVES:

    HOSPITAL BED SET
    SCIENCE BLOCK & COW FEATUS
    HAIR SALON

    MISSION DETAILS:
    WE HAD SEEN BITS OF THIS FROM OTHER PIECES, BUT THE SIZE OF THE SITE WAS HUGE. WE VISITED IT TWICE, ONCE WITH THE AMATEUR WANDERER, AND ANOTHER TIME AND SPENT A GOOD DAY AND A HALF IN TOTAL, WITH TWO DIFFERENT ACCESS POINTS - THE LOCAL COUNCIL SEEMED TO BE PLAYING CAT AND MOUSE WITH THE LOCALS. ON THE SECOND VISIT SOME OF THE LOCALS TURNED UP SO THE GEAR WENT AWAY QUICKTIME, BUT BY THEN WE HAD SEEN ALL WE NEEDED TO. PROBABLY 80 PER CENT OF IT WAS DERP, BUT WE WANTED TO CATCH AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. THE OLDER SIDE HAD STRONG ARCHITECTURAL FEATURES AND HAD BEEN CONVERTED INTO CLASSROOMS FROM GEOGRAPHY TO COOKERY. THE MODERN SIDE HAD A SCIENCE BLOCK, ENGINEERING, LIBRARY AND POLICE SECTION, A HAIR SALON / BEAUTY PARLOUR AND MORE. WE SCORED IT A 6, ON THE COUNTS OF SOME UNIQUE FEATURES, A COW FEATUS, AND A SAUNA BOX ALONG WITH THE REMNANTS OF A SET FOR "EXTREMIS", THE SCRIPT AND ACTORS GUIDE WAS LYING IN A ROOM WHICH WE FOUND, AND THERE WERE ALL SORTS OF TEST TUBES AND STUFF FOR VINCE TO PLAY AROUND WITH... VID CAME OUT GOOD TOO... GOOD TO RETURN AND REVISIT THE STATE OF DECAY IN HUDDERSFIELD...

    STATE OF DECAY: 6
