This was our first explore of the year and also this is my first report on Oblivion State.
I heard about this place threw the forums and also we wanted to head down the Sheffield, Wakefield, Huddersfield area as it seem to be a hot spot for some good explores.
I went down at the weekend before to have a look around and i quickly walked around the outside and before id even got to my car i was getting questioned by the car park security. He was a friendly enough guy and even said he could get me access but where is the fun in that? So fast forward to the following weekend and a nice quiet Sunday.
LITTLE HISTORY ON THE PLACE as im sure most of your know
The Hospital was founded in 1831 with the carlile wing been opened in 1902
The site incorporates 10 buildings ranging from Grade 2 listed Hospital buildings to modern blocks of classrooms.
The former Ramsden Technical College moved on to the New North Road site of the former Huddersfield Royal Infirmary in 1967.The college paid £105,000 for the site.
In September 1968 the first students began lectures at New North Road.The first new bulding on the site opened in 1969.The main new block was built in 1971 - the year the college became Huddersfield Technical College
By 1978 there were more than 8,000 students studying at the site.In 2008 Huddersfield Technical College merged with Dewsbury College to form Kirklees College
The College moved into a new purpose build waterfront development in 2013 which will welcome 20K Students.
The old site has been purchased by Oldham based Wiggett Construction Company for an undisclosed sum. Plans for the future of the site are expected to be unveiled early in 2016 but the developers are expected to create a mixed use site featuring residential, retails and leisure uses.
Access was pretty much straight forward thank to vandals who like to smash windows. Quite an interesting building and its an absolute maze causing a couple of "oh shit where are we" moments. As it mentions in the history it say its been a Hospital/College but we also seen logos on the walls to do with the local police? Can anybody expand on this? Quite a bit of stuff left behind in a lot of the rooms. Also a very interesting basement and boiler room. Any way we all had a good day and there is a lot take in... so here is some photo that i took along the way... to record our look around....
Thanks For Looking
