Meanwood Park Hospital

The old abandoned hospitals you can still see in Leeds

These are the former hospitals, asylums and workhouses still standing in Leeds today.

Some of the buildings have been converted for other uses, while others remain derelict.

Built in 1869 as a convalescent home, it was used as a military hospital during WW1 and later became a cancer centre. It closed in 2008 and remains derelict, although it's been earmarked for housing.
