Horsforth College or Horsforth Campus was part of Leeds City College until in shut in 2017. I’m not sure when it was built but looks like 1970s and merged with other colleges in 2009 to form Leeds City College.

There are playing fields at the front of the college and gardens at the back.

I've not seen this before so well done, decent first report too.

I’m not sure when it was built but looks like 1970s and merged with other colleges in 2009 to form Leeds City College.
Built in 1971, It started life as Airedale and Wharfedale College of Further Education.

It merged with Park Lane college in 1998.

On 1 April 2009 Park Lane College merged with Leeds Thomas Danby and the Leeds College of Technology to form the new Leeds City College taking the total number of students to 45,000. The three main Park Lane sites are now known as the Park Lane Campus, Horsforth Campus and Keighley Campus of the new college.

Thanks, didn’t know the full history of it before it became Leeds City College. I went a couple of times when it was LCC.

I’m surprised I couldn’t find anymore reports on it seeing as it’s been shut since 2017

I went up twice, the first time I walked up to the front door just to have a look and a guy came out of a container there and just looked and me so I left. The second time was on a bank holiday and there was no one about
Theres a generator in a security container now, Didn't see it when we went in.
They tried to keep us in the building till the "police" came. we just climbed out a window.
Its pretty shit in there though isn't it, its fudged!

Yeah it’s a bit disappointing, I mean it’s not worth getting threatened with a metal for

I came here in early April and the access was easy. I wasn't expecting it to open, but I tried the door to the kitchen and it just opened with no implications. The site was partly trashed in some parts, but others it was relatively okay, just a bit bare and stripped of anything. I did see the container when I entered, but thought nothing of it, until I saw that exact security guard come out and walk about only outside. I still continued to explore, because I wouldn't think he would be able to come into the building due to health and safety. Looks like he comes inside anyway. The site does have multiple access points and many open windows. I am wanting to return to see how further decayed it has become, also because I didn't explore the outbuildings. Does anybody have updates on the current security and access points?

Access easy. No problems in or out, was only a very quick visit so these are the only photos I got.

I think I'll be giving this a visit in the near future, any idea if security are still there? If so, any idea if they have become any more vigilant?

Yes mate, last time I went there was a small cabin/container on the main path to the entrance. The security is in there. As far as I'm concerned there is only one man, as pictured earlier. When I went and I was circling the building for quite a while until I went in then I saw a man get out of the cabin, so I was very lucky for him not to catch me earlier.

Just try access the site from the back, there is a football field with the caretakers house there, go that route instead of the main driveway. You should be fine, don't think they have boarded up the site, it is very easy to get in. They are planning to build houses on there, so be quick before they start demolition.
