I know I've posted a load of old reports recently. Just mega busy at the mo, and I'll be back on it properly come Sept!! This was a good explore until it got demo'd. Having had late friends who passed through these corridors made the explore somewhat more meaningful...

Cookridge Convalescent Hospital was opened in 1869 to provide a place for patients who had been treated at Leeds General Infirmary to continue their recovery.
The £10,000 cost of the original building, designed in a Gothic vernacular style, was met by a donation from John Metcalfe Smith, of Beckett's Bank in Leeds. Experiments using radium against cancer started on a small scale in Leeds as early as 1929 but Cookridge did not concentrate on cancer for another 20 years when it was acquired by the Leeds Regional Hospital Board. Cookridge was the UK's leading Cancer Hospital till closure in 2008, when it's services were transferred to a new unit at St James's.
