Administration block for Killingbeck Smallpox Hospital under construction (Killingbeck) (2 comments)
Black & White image19th April 1915 View looking southwards, showing the new Smallpox isolation ward under construction. The main block was originally the farmhouse of Killingbeck Farm to which the new extension was connected. These buildings were part of a small separate compound which became known as 'Killingbeck Smallpox Hospital' situated on the slopes of Wykebeck Valley. The compound also contained one new ward, a small mortuary and some converted farm buildings. Information supplied by John Garnett (Source: The 50th Anniversary booklet of the opening of Seacroft and Killingbeck Hospitals, 1954.)

Footprint of the ward of Killingbeck Smallpox Hospital (Killingbeck) (3 comments)
Colour image5th January 2008. Image shows a flat, grassed area where the footprint of the ward of Killingbeck Smallpox Hospital can be clearly seen surrounded by trees and brambles. A decision was taken in 1912, to build a separate, small Smallpox Hospital as the main hospital building was to be converted to a sanatorium for the treatment of Tuberculosis. The site chosen for the Smallpox Hospital was that of Killingbeck Farm, which had, at one time, supplied Killingbeck and Seacroft hospitals with eggs and poultry. The incidence of smallpox declined and no cases were admitted there after 1931.
