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 it"s 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 it"s impressive original sandstone columns identical to those on the nearby  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 £60M  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 it"s local site.
 
The  area is not a place i frequent often. I find it too much like Bradford, all doom & gloom & full of Druggies who ironically, had curtailed my first trip prematurely when i"d previously recce"d this place in the Summer . I"d completely forgotten about the place, so thanks go too @albino-jay for bringing this location back into the limelight, with his quality recent night-time report 
 And thanks for the pointers mate 

 
Called down one typically Yorkshire gloomy day for a recce & met up with @The Amateur Wanderer later on & decided to return on another much more gloomy freezing & wet day (nice too meet up again mate 
 had some laughs & frights along the way 

 
The site itself is vast combining old & new construction techniques & buildings, so one minute you"re inside a modern day facility the next you"ve stepped back in time. The only thing they both share is the fact they"ve been well trashed. It looks like the Metal Fairies have been very busy over the last 3 years & is very reminiscent of DRI / Clayton Hospital with added Razor Wire on top. But has lots of hidden nooks & crannies to keep you occupied for a few hours at the least.
 
I should mention that lots of rooms etc have been modified for Filming purposes from what we could ascertain, paint schemes similar to smoke & soot damage over the walls and curtains and strategic placed old beds & equipment .....which obviously been strategically re-positioned lol 
 
As always, thanks for looking

That's a bit bloody nice!! Seems like it has a little bit of everything and a nice variation of shots and styles :)

To use the cliche... "added to my list" :D
