Stanley Royd, Former Pauper Lunatic Asylum Wakefield

OK, so a shorter post after that mammoth one yesterday. Take a look at this 1960s video footage of Stanley Royd, Former Pauper Lunatic Asylum Wakefield. I was starting to be disturbed by the lack of patients in the video – where were they? But right at the end, it shows some of the people there. I guess maybe they were trying to protect their privacy?

It’s a forbidding place from the outside, interesting to get a look inside.
