Another report from me, this one from way back in March. Me and Sweetpea hit the road early doors as we went to the Crown Courts before we hit this place. (ill get the crown courts report up soon)

No issues getting in even though it is surrounded by new builds and people! Did bump into Urbexbandoned and Scattergun in here that day too.

Bit of history from Wiki:

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 closed in 2003 and the site has since been developed for residential use, some of which is in the old hospital buildings.
In its final years of operation, High Royds had become outdated and unsuited to modern psychiatric practice.[according to whom?] As part of Leeds Mental Health's £47 million reprovision process it was closed, with the wards being relocated to various community mental health units within the city of Leeds in the three years leading up to its closure. These include the Becklin Centre in St James' Hospital and the Mount in the city centre. The hospital was closed in stages between 25 February 2003 and June of the same year.

As of 2011, the site was being redeveloped as a new village, also called High Royds, retaining some features of the hospital such as the ballroom and the clock tower











Thanks for looking

The angles and subject matter are excellent but it looks like you have correctly exposed the photos when you took them but then intentionally darked them a few stops in post which has given everything a selection of odd colours and washed highlights - other than that, some very nice work :)
