    Arrow Storthes Hall Asylum - Huddersfield - November 08


    Open 1904 Closed 1991

    This is what little remains of Storthes Hall Asylum near Huddersfield. Most of the hsopital has been cleared away and all that remains is the stripped out mortuary building and the main admin building. It must have been an huge place as there are acres of demolished rubble round the remaining building, it looks like a war zone.

    More info on the asylum here.

    Excellent pics KE,

    Just been googling for any info on Storthes Hall, and found this. (people will probably have seen it, but here it is again lol)

    "Storthes Hall Park, the main purpose-built student village, was once a psychiatric hospital. This was mostly demolished and developed into the student village, opening in 1995. The campus was sold to Ubrique Investments Limited in 2003, having previously been owned by the University.

    Shows the newer parts of the site. According to the website, they only use 2 of the former asylum buildings.

    Hope that helps a little?

    :) Sal
