High Royds Lunatic Asylum

High Royds is a former psychiatric hospital situated on the outskirts of Menston. It was first opened in 1888 as the "West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum" and continued operating to some extent right up until 2003. The stern Gothic architecture of the old buildings and the decaying state of its labyrinthine corridors makes it an incredibly atmospheric spot and a much sought-after location for urban explorers.
