Under the approved plans, most of the hospital buildings will be demolished, but the pavilion building will be retained and restored and form part of new facilities for the Wakefield Grammar School Foundation.

As Clayton Hospital approaches its final days, we took a look back through our archive to find 21 photos showing the site through more than 100 years of history. You can learn more about the history of the hospital - and the remarkable women who helped to found it - here.
