Clayton Hospital Morgue and other Bits - Wakefield - December 2014

Evening all, another hospital explore from myself and Borolad, very disappointing this one though, the place is trashed... A few bits worth seeing though, the morgue been the highlight (Never thought I'd find myself saying that :crazy haha).

Anyway a little bit of info below and then I'll crack on with the pics...


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
Right pictures it is then, we'll start in the main building...

One of the trashed wards, worth a look though, those lamps can make some pretty sexy images...

A nice looking plaque built into the wall inscription reads:

In affectionate remembrance of Colonel Milnes Gaskell of Lvpset Hall whose last wish it was to see this work done this ward for the reception of suffering children has been erected by his widow Lovisa Milnes Gaskell - AD - MDCCCC

Before moving onto the morgue one of the old X-Ray department...

This is gonna sound like a very nooby question, but what's the whole fascination with hospital morgues?

Surprised the lamps still have bulbs in, you've captured the morgue well considering how small it is, thanks for posting :thumb

For me, it's a place where the living don't generally reside. It's a morbid fascination with the knowledge that a lot of deceased people have been in the same room - not to mention for people who believe in the paranormal, they always have an odd aura around them.

Uh huh. So you're saying that ghost hunters have a weird feeling as if they're with the dead who were in the same room at one point? Huh.

That's a load of shit. It's just another room. The reason some people might feel that way is probably because they know what it used to be. Imagination does the rest. Just ask one of those fake psychics from most haunted.

Cheers all, glad the first shot is getting some love, really pleased with it! Got some film from here waiting to be developed too :)

Couldn't agree more, I've been in quite a few 'haunted' locations now and never seen a thing. Why do I find abandoned morgues interesting? Probably just because I'm a little bit weird... :p

Very nice set of shots here mate, I had heard that this place was totally sealed up not, this would appear to not be the case then!
Could be once again now mate, I think we just got lucky, looked like local pikeys or chavs had been smashing the place up not long before we went in...
