    Cool Kirklees College and former huddersfield royal infirmary


    The Hospital was founded in 1831 & by 1929 special feature available included Turkish, Russian & medicated baths & electro-medical department. The Infirmary was also approved for the treatment of Veneral Diseases
    The New Road Campus has been home to its various named College incarnations since the 1967 when the College paid £105,000 for the site. New buildings were opened in 1967 with the main block being opened in 1971. By 1978 they were 8,000 Students attending the college.
    The site which now consists of 10 linked buildings totaling 342,000 sq/ft over a 6.1 Acre site, which includes the original Grade 2 listed Hospital buildings, with its impressive original sandstone columns identical to those on the nearby Huddersfield Railway Station. With the statue of Edward the VII now looking over the car park.
    The College has recently moved into a new purpose build waterfront development for £70M which will welcome 20K Students.
    The old site has been purchased by Oldham based Wiggett Construction Company for an undisclosed sum Suggestions for the site include a Supermarket, a Care or Medical Centre, with the final potion un-allocated. The local Lidl has confirmed it will move to the new location from its local Castlegate site.
    The former hospital building has being used for psychological thriller Extremis, starring David O’Hara (Braveheart, The Departed, Luther), Isabelle Allen (Les Miserables), Neil Pearson (Drop the Dead Donkey); and 1980s singer Toyah Wilcox.
    Black Work,a drama starring acclaimed actress Sheridan Smith, was filmed last Autumn partly in the hospital and in the town and in other parts of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
    Also the drama Remember Me staring Michael Palin, Mark Addy and Julia Sawahla was partly filmed here where the buiding was transformed in to a hospital, care home and a police station as you can see on a few photos.

    Wow! That's a lot of pictures to go through but makes it an interesting post though. I did notice the notice. And the ghetto-blaster is an example of listening to too much thrash metal.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
