My second asylum we have visited small bit of history I know about it.
It was founded an asylum in 1904, Storthes Hall in Kirkburton and treated patients for 87 years.
In the early part of the 20th century, part of the hospital was devoted to treating shell-shocked World War One soldiers, but most of the patients were 'pauper lunatics' who were detained under the Lunacy Act 1890.
The hall was also home to women who were locked up for having children out of wedlock. They had to spend the rest of their lives there.

Everything is demolished apart from one building not sure what it was but these are the pictures I have got today.

When we where there we did see two people who didn't look like security but they did tell us that it was privete land and a car was on the site once it had left there was no body to be seen so we could have a look around without being caught. There was a security camera as you can see in the picture but it wasn't working by the looks of things.

I have been told that they may have plans to turn the land into something else so not sure how much longer this will be here, but hopefully it's something useful and not a waste.

Really, after all this time they've suddenly stuck CCTV, fences and security patrols up for just the crusty derp admin block??

Did you walk the full way round the back there wasn't any security that stoped us as at the back when we found a way in, unless they have made it more sucure because there was fencing round it when we went

Love this. I went to university in Huddersfield and lived in the student village next door. Brings back a lot of memories. Walked around this place so many times. Was always rumours of it being guarded so never went inside. Would like to pay it another visit
